Münsterhof – Zurich
In the heart of the old city I created ultra modern structures of shadow & shelter for all year round. Respecting the necessary traffic and the public character of the square, handling the grid that comes from pedestrians crossing to all directions and redirectings flows of winds and cold.
The space is designed to let fanfares and markets take place, to connect and for the water source to bring refreshment. The roof of the modern constructions contains solar cells, throwing ecologically shining city lights during evenings and nights.
I see a waiter bringing drinks to people sitting on a terrace, enjoying their weekend in the shade during a hot summer Saturday afternoon, celebrating summer in the heart of the city.
