Co-Working und Stadtentwicklung

Changing working processes transforming spatial structures: Coworking and urban and rural development

The reorganisation of the labour world is also leading to the emergence of new workplaces. Co-working spaces are a new type of workplace. Co-working spaces are a spatial response to the increasing flexibility and the accompanying uncertainty and self-determination in knowledge-intensive professions, especially in the field of cultural and creative work. Large parts of knowledge and creative workers are self-employed or freelance and involved in insecure and highly flexible working arrangements. For these actors in particular, temporary workplaces beyond their own homes are important.

The field of urban and economic development also deals with cultural and creative work. Actors in the cultural and creative industries Co-working spaces as places of knowledge and creative work offer different opportunities for cities and city districts, for urban development and also for other actors.

The project focuses on the relationship between co-working spaces and urban development in cities and rural areas.
