How Can the Site Contribute to the Productive City?
The aim is to transform the mono-functional residential use of the existing 5- and 11-storey prefabricated buildings of the Eastern city centre into mixed-use districts. Connections to the Western historical city centre should be created by means of total or partial demolition. The public space system in the city centre should be enhanced […] The principle of separating work and residences should be broken open and be replaced by the city of short routes. The goal of a mixed-use city with short distances and high-quality architecture and public spaces is the central idea.
