Europan 12 Kreuzlingen / Konstanz


Team point of view

The task was to open the site up naturally, crossing the barriers of railway tracks and national borders. This happens with the “Highline”, which” creates a direct connection between the centres of Konstanz and Kreuzlingen. At the midpoint will be a cultural building which works as a gateway to the other side. It defines the other side spatially and forces transparency and exchange on the basis of common history and topography. It`s the hotspot for the exploitation of “Klein Venedig”. In a further phase, the old shore is exposed again. This creates an island, designed as recreational area. The concept offers a chance for an adaptable and sustainable urban development which will bring both cities and the lake closer together.
