Introduction

Geography Field Work A study of the CBD of Hannover Isaure de Z�licourt 12L Candidate number: School code: Table of Contents AIM AND HYPOTHESES 4 Aim 4 Hypotheses 4 LOCATION 5 AREA OF HANNOVER USED FOR THE STUDY 6 THEORETICAL BACKGROUND 7 EXPLANATION OF HYPOTHESES AND METHODOLOGY 9 ASSUMPTIONS 10 DATA PRESENTATION AND ANALYSIS 12 Hypothesis I - The height of buildings 12 Hypothesis II - The environmental quality 13 DESIGN OF A MODEL FOR HANNOVER 15 CONCLUSION AND EVALUATION 16 APPENDICES 17 Appendix A 17 Appendix B 18 Appendix C 19 BIBLIOGRAPHY 20 AIM AND HYPOTHESES Aim 1) To investigate the CBD of Hannover and determine whether the CBD complies with the accepted principles. Hypotheses 1) The further we walk from the CBD, the lower the building will be. 2) The further we walk from the CBD, the more the environmental quality will decrease. LOCATION AREA OF HANNOVER USED FOR THE STUDY Our study was conducted, in the center of Hannover, capital city of the state of Lower- Saxony, in Northern Germany. Hannover is a modern city as well as state capital with a very well developed public transportation system. We investigated an area of about 4km2 around the departure point, Kr�pcke, the peak land value intersection marked as START on figure 3. The routes followed by the groups in the area that we believe to be the CBD of Hannover are indicated with different colors. ...read more.

See environmental survey in Appendix A ASSUMPTIONS Buildings height: The height of the buildings is going to decrease in some areas but it might as well increase or stay the same in some other areas. Some people are going to walk towards some more residential areas where the height of buildings will decrease but some people walking toward Steintor for example might find higher buildings since there are still shops and public buildings. Some areas with high buildings would be Aegidientorplatz 1 which has the Nord LB building ( bank) which is one of the highest one in Hannover. Some areas with lower buildings would be the Karmachstrasse2 due to its closeness to the old city and the height regulation have to be respected there. Environmental quality: The environmental quality is generally going to increase as we get away from the CBD of Hannover. It is a contradiction to the models since they state that the environmental quality is at the highest in the CBD to attract people. It is however not the case for Hannover which being totally renovated. For example, the area around the Machsee is a very clean and pleasant area and it is quite far from the CBD while and area like Steintor which is very close from the city center, doesn't have such a great environmental quality. ...read more.
