MVRDV为德国勃兰登堡州首府波茨坦市中心规划的一个文化创意园区从竞赛中胜出。该项目将为创意群体提供可持续的、经济适用的工作场所，同时突出勃兰登堡州首府城市的创新能力、经济实力和文化生活质量。通过恢复都市街区并结合现有的历史建筑，MVRDV的设计将还原历史城镇的布局，同时基于村落的理念为街区注入新鲜和充满活力的氛围。MVRDV has won a competition to masterplan a new cultural and creative quarter for the heart of Potsdam, which will offer creative people sustainable and affordable workspaces while spotlighting the innovation, economic power, and cultural quality of life of the state capital of Brandenburg. MVRDV's design restores the historic town layout by reinstating the urban block and incorporating existing historical structures, while adding a new and vibrant atmosphere to the block through the project’s concept based on the idea of a Village.

MVRDV为业主Glockenweiß设计的方案令竞赛组委会深信，该方案能提供的创意空间远超招标要求。根据开发规划的设想，总体规划提出在都市街区的边缘建造两栋建筑物，但是内部庭院——最初被规划为空旷的广场——将用于实现功能的创新组合，庭院内将创造能够实现小规模空间干预的密度，从而保证更多的亲密度及多样性。The concept designed by MVRDV for developer Glockenweiß convinced the competition committee thanks to its creation of considerably more space for the creative scene than was required in the tender. The masterplan proposes two perimeter buildings at the edges of the urban block, as envisaged by the development plan, but the inner courtyard – originally foreseen as an empty square – will be used for an innovative mix of functions, creating a spatial density that will allow for small-scale interventions and thus guarantee more intimacy as well as diversity.

建筑群总建筑面积约为24,400平方米，其中6,950平方米是向小型文化创意产业出租的办公空间，与原计划相比，MVRDV将为这类企业提供更多价格实惠的租赁型办公空间。通过引入小巷、庭院、绿色屋顶和广场, 不同的建筑体量创造了一个空间多样化的区域，也创造了人与人之间互动的多种可能性，展现了使用者的多元化。此外，它还具备餐饮、幼儿园、会展区等功能，超出了业主的需求。The ensemble of buildings helps to provide a total of 24,400 square metres of floor space, 6,950 square metres of which will be affordable rental space, offering far more affordable space to the small-scale cultural and creative industries than was originally expected. By introducing different building volumes, a spatially diverse quarter is created with alleys, courtyards, green roofs, and squares. It creates a variety of possibilities for interaction and is an expression of the diversity of its users, while also going beyond the original requirements of the brief with additional functions such as catering, a kindergarten, and conference and exhibition areas.
“村落”的概念为园区的中心区域提供了亲密感和多样性The Village concept provides intimacy and diversity in the central space“这是一个真正得到波茨坦民众支持的项目。”MVRDV总监Sven Thorissen表示：“当波茨坦市决定赋予这个街区文化创意的氛围时，政治家、项目开发商、建筑师和未来的使用者一起加入了高度合作的开发过程。以‘村落’为设计理念，是因为它不仅具有灵活性和功能多样化的密度，还因为它为小型创意企业提供了比期待更多的空间。”
“This is truly a project supported by the public of Potsdam”, says Sven Thorissen, director at MVRDV. “Once the city of Potsdam determined that this block should be given a cultural and creative purpose, an intensive participatory process began in which politicians, the project developer, the architects and future users work together. The concept for the design, ‘the Village’, emerged because of the flexibility it offers, the density of diverse functions and because it allowed for more space for small-scale creative businesses than had been requested.”

The new creative quarter Potsdam will be built in three construction phases. First, affordable studio space will be realized in 2023 to provide a seamless transition for the artists now located in the Rechenzentrum. The first construction phase will involve the creation of a building on the site of the former Langer Stall, based on the original building volume and incorporating the building’s preserved end façade. The second phase covers the realization of the Village buildings within the building block. In a last phase a housing block along the Werner-Seelenbinder Strasse will complete the ensemble.
总体规划提出在城市街区的边缘建造两栋建筑物，内部庭院用于功能的创新组合The masterplan proposes two perimeter buildings at the edges of the urban block, with the inner courtyard used for an innovative mix of functions总体规划包括一个全面的可持续概念，其中的关键元素包括整合公共和私人绿地，使用可回收材料，整合利用可持续能源发电，以及传播具有适应性的新出行理念。波茨坦市内已具备运行状态良好的人行道和公共交通工具，该创意园区内也包含步行道和自行车道，并提供共享电动汽车作为补充的出行方式，减少园区内租户对私家车的需求。
The masterplan includes a comprehensive sustainability concept, with key elements including the integration of public and private green spaces, the use of recyclable materials, the integration of elements for sustainable energy generation, and the communication of a new and adaptable mobility concept. Starting from the already-excellent pedestrian and public transport connections of the inner-city location, the planned footpaths and cycle paths of the creative quarter will be supplemented by an electric car-sharing scheme, reducing the need for private car ownership among the tenants of the area.
MVRDV designed the Creative Quarter masterplan for developer Glockenweiß. The next phase is a competition that will define the architectural elements of the masterplan. Construction is expected to start in 2021.
