17) Why are mixed structures forward-looking and sustainable?

Func­tio­n­ing and mul­ti­cul­tu­ral neigh­bor­hoods and chan­ging mobi­li­ty pat­terns will shape the city of tomorrow.

As a result of the eco­no­mic and tech­no­lo­gi­cal chan­ge, the pro­por­ti­on of busi­nes­ses that work in a way that is com­pa­ti­ble with housing is incre­a­sing. Tech­no­lo­gy and service-oriented busi­nes­ses are no lon­ger pri­ma­ri­ly loca­ted in the “clas­sic” indus­tri­al esta­te but are loo­king for loca­ti­ons with good sur­roun­dings and urban struc­tures. A mix­tu­re of living, working, edu­ca­ti­on and leisu­re time is also a long-term means of avoiding traf­fic. When social­ly dif­fe­rent neigh­bor­hoods form, which sup­port each other, a posi­ti­ve urban cul­tu­re can deve­lop in the sen­se of a Bru­cker identity.

The 2015 gui­de­li­ne decisi­on, the­re­fo­re, fol­lows a con­sis­tent mix of uses.
