Ground floor plans of nine areas in the city of Munich.

As a part of an ongoing project, 876 students drew the ground floor plans of nine large areas of the inner city of Munich at a scale of 1:500, from the current existing plans.

This project is about experiencing the urban space, the city structure and the building typology, which are particularly visible on the ground floor plan.
As in the figure-ground drawing of the Nolli Plan for Rome or in the Aldo Rossi Plan of Zurich, the Munich Plan also focuses on the structure and development of the city, with the importance of the ground floor zone in connecting urban space and buildings within the urban structure.

The plans of large areas of Munich‘s inner city provide an interesting insight into the urban development of Munich and make the use of public space clearly visible..

The Munich Plan Box was launched as a collection of plans, in connection with the exhibition -Munich Plan Stadtgrundrisse- in the Lokalbaukommission from April 16th to July 19th 2024.

The printing of the Munich Plan Box was made possible by the support of
_Palais Mai Architekten München

Over a period of ten years, as part of their joint teaching at the Technical University of Munich, British architect Stephen Bates and his Zurich-based colleague Bruno Krucker explored, investigated, and analyzed the Bavarian capital in collaboration with their students. The resulting in-depth study evaluates the city’s building history and ideas for its future in detail, and is now being presented in the form of a highly attractive compendium.

This richly illustrated book takes a close look at the European city in general, using Munich as an example. Its features are illuminated through a variety of means: atmospheric photographs, precise plans, drawings, images of models, and texts reveal the multi-layered and complex character of the place with all its particularities, coincidences, and intentions.

Like many other European cities, Munich has also been subject to incisive changes, whether through planned expansions, infrastructural developments, or war damage. This volume highlights how big plans and visions have often remained piecemeal, bound up with the paradigms of a generation, yet precisely because of this have proven to be unmistakable elements that shape Munich up to this day. Alongside this, individual new structures have resulted in continuous changes to the character of streets and demonstrate that the unfinished and unplanned are just as much a part of a city’s beauty.
