Building and use concepts
Optimising the strategic positioning of infrastructures

Publicly accessible buildings are anchor points in the development of neighbourhoods and urban districts and are therefore important for the coexistence of our society. Culture, leisure, education and socioculture play a central role as formative and meaningful offerings. Whether you are a traditional cultural organisation, educational institution, local authority or other player in urban development - actori supports you in designing your projects.

actori's approach begins as early as the so-called "service phase 0": From the basic vision, needs assessment, utilisation concept, the development and translation of the spatial programme to the location and the summary of structural framework conditions to the preparation and support of the implementation process. We combine this structural perspective closely with our many years of expertise in the operational and financial planning of cultural, educational and entertainment centres. Our methodological expertise in the field of participation is also utilised in formats such as surveys, workshops, interviews and large-scale participatory events.
We identify, moderate and connect the different perspectives of all those involved in the process: users, planners, those responsible for buildings, construction and urban planning, political decision-makers, but also future target groups. This creates a holistic view of the construction project in order to optimise its positioning in the initial phases.  


"In the case of buildings for culture, education and entertainment, the special features of these uses, the different perspectives of the various project participants and the operational aspects must be considered from the outset."
