About us

The Hamburg-based urban planning office Stadtkreation was founded in 2008 by Johannes Bouchain and has developed specialized skills and knowledge within the fields of urban design/urban planning, sustainable mobility planning, cartography/GIS, communication/design/web development, and moderation/participation since then. Our projects include classical planning processes as well as innovative and informal planning and participation tools. Also, a special focus within our projects lies on the presentation of and communication about the respective projects within the internet. But for all traditional planning issues, we work together with our diverse partner agencies as well. We would appreciate to develop new projects with you – or to welcome you within our network. Just contact us!.

Our team

The Stadtkreation team also consists of several freelancers who participate in the realization of our various projects, depending on workloads and special needs.
