From 2013 to 2015 the IBA Heidelberg explored the 15 different districts of Heidelberg accompanied by citizens, journalists, architects and artists. Together with around 100 participants we looked up old favorites, discovered much that was new and unusual, examined the city’s knowledge spaces intensely and discussed ideas – all under the premise of looking at Heidelberg with the perspective of the knowledge based society.

In the summer of 2015 IBA_LOCAL went one step further: With the city’s Lord Mayor Dr. Würzner as patron, the IBA launched the competition “Your Place – Your View” for young people in Heidelberg.

We would like to thank our main sponsor HeidelbergCement and secondary sponsor Epple Holding for their kind support for IBA_LOCAL 2015.

In 2016, IBA_LOCAL will be focusing on companies that have invested or wish to invest in district development and education as part of cooperations with players from civil society and the local authorities.
