Project published in Next Collective Housing in progress
June 26, 2010
Zurich’s Aussersihl district, a working-class neighbourhood not far from the city centre, is undergoing deep rehabilitation. An architectural competition was organised for the Kalkbreite area, an unused lot. The competition rules were written by a neighbourhood cooperative with a group of experts, in order to assure a mix of uses and integration of the block in the social and urban context. The winning project is built on a tram shed at ground level and its roof serves as a public plaza, connected to street life by means of a large stairway.
