Sendling International

Sendling and its wholesale market area is in many ways presenting an exception to the way in which cities have transformed over recent decades. Whilst many urban industrial areas have become redundant, and former railway, port and other infrastructure areas became subject to large scale regeneration processes, some areas, like the Sendling wholesale market, remained untouched by waves of modernisation and restructuring.

There is a growing awareness today of the benefits that centrally located urban infrastructure areas are presenting to the city centres. So whilst the spatial requirement of the Sendling wholesale market area is ever increasing, alongside with constraints placed on urban transport and logistics, the city of Munich currently considers retaining the market as an important urban element with great local significance in Sendling.

However, the continuously growing city cannot avoid examining the few remaining inner-city areas for their potential for inner-urban densification and regeneration. The triangular railway area formerly serving the wholesale market is one of the areas currently under consideration by the municipality and is the site we chose for this term’s design project.
