Welheimer Mark Studio, conducted in 2012, was composed of nine urban planning graduate students at the Columbia University School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. The Emschergenossenschaft, a German river management organization, tasked these students with developing land use vision for the small residential community of Weilheimer Mark in the city of Bottrop, one of the eleven cities in the Ruhrgebiet (Ruhr region) of Germany. Welheimer Mark is an isolated, working class neighborhood in a shrinking region that developed around coal mining. The client, Emschergenossenschaft, was in charge of the Emscher Redevelopment Project, a project that will clean and open access to the river for the region. As part of this project the Emschergenossenschaft is initiating development projects in the communities that line the river, one of which is Welheimer Mark.
