Abstract:

For plenty years, many popular mountain resorts have seen largely uncontrolled development consisting of the multiplication of archetypal chalet-style houses. This is usually accompanied by roadbuilding for private cars. In order to protect these tourist destinations and their natural environs from further uncontrolled development, the author investigates different settlement structures such as Andermatt, Avoriaz, Verbier, Zermatt,and Whistler-Blackcomb. On the basis of detailed graphical analyses, she develops groundbreaking strategies for urban densification and suitable mobility management, which can also be transferred to other tourist areas.

Viele beliebte Gebirgsorte entwickeln sich seit Jahrzehnten weitgehend unkontrolliert durch Multiplikation archetypischer Chalets. Damit geht zumeist die Erschließung durch den privaten Autoverkehr einher. Um die umgebenden Tourismus- und Naturgebiete vor weiterer Zersiedelung zu schützen, untersucht die Autorin so unterschiedliche Ortsstrukturen wie Andermatt, Avoriaz, Verbier und Zermatt sowie Whistler-Blackomb in Kanada. Aus detaillierten grafischen Analysen entwickelt sie wegweisende Strategien zur städtebaulichen Verdichtung und zu einer angepassten Mobilität, die sich auf andere Tourismusregionen übertragen lassen.
