dc.description.abstract
Altstetten is one of the most rapily changing districts in the city of Zürich. Being crucial to Zürich’s future development, Altstetten’s spatial development as well as perception are of great interest. It offers a wide variety of characteristics, from a work-driven office district to a calm living area and busy industrial areas turning into lively mixed-used residential zones. During a short-term study during the summer of 2017 we conducted measurements concerning livability and comfort in four chosen district cores in order to understand why people spend time in certain areas and feel more comfortable using them. These cores were assessed in studies on the history and spatial development of Altstetten as well as its access to open spaces and its building development in connection with the growing importance of the railway station and public transport. --> Altstetten is one of the most rapily changing districts in the city of Zürich.
