Kolleg Europa. March 2018, Paris, France. Paper: Transformation of ‘work', ‘mobility' and ‘lifestyle': potentials and problems of central residential areas (in German).

Lifestyles and the needs of urban residents are determined by working conditions and their degree of flexibility, as well as by work-related commuting. At the same time, cities face the problem of dealing with the environmental and ecological impact of traffic and its constant growth. Against this backdrop, «local scale» is key to grasping the challenges and developmental potential of cities toward sustainable mobility.

The present study looks at how place of residency and working conditions affect individual models of mobility. In particular, this project focuses on the analysis of mobility models of residents in central, middle, and peripheral urban zones with traditional and flexible working conditions. The study, on the one hand, intends to complement the discussion between Beckmann (2001), Kemper (2011), Scheiner and Holz-Rau (2015) on the interaction of space and mobility. On the other hand, it aims to create new starting points for sustainable concepts of urban mobility.

The differences between the mobility models of residents with classical and flexible working conditions are illuminated with theoretical notions such as space-time prism (Hägerstrand) and human activity patterns (Chapin). The study’s test case for analysis is the development of central, semi-peripheral and peripheral areas of Chelyabinsk. The empirical phase of the research involves the analysis of selected building types and their spatial characteristics, as well as standardised surveys of residents living in select areas, as well as interviews with individual residents.
