LOKVIERTEL OSNABRÜCK // 2. Preis - 07.07.2021
What is the new Lokviertel? ... Napels, for example.
Markus Penell, O&O Baukunst
O&O Baukunst’s competition entry for the master development plan of the former freight yard in Osnabrück has been awarded 2nd place.
Those who gain land should use the opportunity to gain city, too. It would be hard to find a place with a shape and location more inspirational to the founding of a city. The precise, arcing contour of the area is surprising reminiscent of the European city figures we know so well.
The accesses, connections, visual references, and networking with the surrounding town act as drivers for the liveliness of the quarter. High-rise buildings clearly mark the entrances, forming a kind of relay game with both the existing and planned high points of Osnabrück.
