The city of Graz is currently experiencing the strongest percentage population growth of all Austrian cities and will continue to do so in the future. This growth can no longer take place on greenfield sites, also for ecological reasons. The focus is therefore increasingly on areas that appear suitable for more intensive and higher-quality use. The area south of the Citypark along the Lazarettgürtel represents a special potential here - the current uses (car park, industry, commerce and partly residential) lack a spatial, future-oriented model.
Following the vision of an inclusive growing city, we will develop sustainable urban designs for this area that provide for a high-quality, well-connected urban quarter with a suitable mix of uses and an adequate supply of green space.
Based on urban structural considerations, we will develop building volumes and their mix of uses as well as development on a scale of 1:1000, with a special focus on the public space and its interconnectedness. Subsequently, we will elaborate parts of the design in more detail at different scales.
