Public open space design
Eberswalde, 2007
The City of Eberswalde’s market square was rediscovered as the town`s functional centre and focal point. It is a place of the past and future, a place for every day life. The concept is interpreting the topographical as well as the historical location of the square. The design reflects the square’s topography as well as it’s historic context. Due to a slight slope the space is oriented towards the Finowkanal (Finow channel) and at the same time is functionally embedded between city hall and "Kreishaus". Right there landscape, urban history and modern every day life merge like nowhere else in town.
