The presented thesis aims to strength the understanding of sustainable mobility’s contribution to the cities, by addressing the extent to which urban mobility infrastructure can enhance the quality of the urban realm and vice versa. ??The study is divided in four sections, the first two - 'theoretical framework’ and ‘an urban dilemma’ - define sustainable mobility, the concept of mobility hubs and question how cities have been addressing it in urban redevelopment projects. The third and four sections, named ‘local problematic’ and ‘the proposal’, sharpen the framework of discussion to the area surrounding Berlin’s Central Station and, by analysing the selected site and building scenarios, propose the MeMo Hub, a Metropolitan Mobility Hub. ??The focus of this study is the city of Berlin, that has been suffering a wide range of transformations after the fall of the Berlin Wall. As part of the goal to rise the city’s attractiveness worldwide and its wellbeing, the governmental institutions are promoting projects that follows the guidelines of sustainable mobility. It is crucial to understand the importance of public participation integrated in this process to achieve the common goal. ??In this regard, MeMo Hub propose, by involving the stakeholders since the early stages of the planning, a mobility hub that is both source and destination for urban activity. Fostering a diversity of activities and improving the connection of the Central Station within the city, it creates a sense of place where the citizens of the rising district can belong. ??
