Former Spinning Mill, Senden


Ideas workshop for the neighborhood development of the former spinning mill in Senden – Living between forest and water

The site of the former Senden spinning mill is located south of Ulm in the landscape of the Illertal. Here and there, quarry ponds and old canal arms also bear witness to the river’s importance as an industrial site. Today, largely renaturalized, this natural area offers great potential as a local recreation area. In Senden, it was the textile industry that made use of the water power here – with the spinning mills in Freudenegg and Ay and the weaving mill on the Illerkanal, the first large building structures settled here. We see our design rather in relation to the scale of the landscape and as a heritage of the large industrial building structures, not as a continuation of the outwardly proliferating settlement structures of Sendens/Ay.
