From 75 submissions, our project "Aspern Seepark" with LAVALAND GmbH and TH Treibhaus is nominated for its outstanding design. On 10th November, the award ceremony will take place in Cologne, within the scope of the International Trade Fair for Open Space, Sports and Baths.
The city is an undefined and urban habitat. Who designs it? How will we live in the future? Who owns the city and what public space do we want? The opening ceremony of the "Park" project takes place on the 1st of January 2017, and offers opening speeches from different guests, among other Peter Bauer from werkraum ingenieure, music and further program. Four weeks open discourses, workshops and entertainment programs take place.
Who says living and working don’t go together? The concept of sharing is changing in our society.

The flexible housing complexes and workspaces are ideal for small-scale producers, artists or personal creative endeavours. You can read more about this here:
