160 hectare transformation

Between Olympiapark and Maxvorstadt is an area of 160 ha, central Munich’s largest area of transformation. A former military site, the area is a curious mix of university campus, cultural use of former industrial halls, wasteland, residential area, veterinary clinics and military area. But it is precisely these contrasts that harbour a surprising potential to meet the needs of modern urban society. Instead of imposing a uniform order on a fragmented space, our concept aims to sharpen the profile of its individual parts and partially public spaces.
