Sechseläutenplatz – Zurich
Rewarding this important square by creating a covered summer garden, leveled walk-throughs and a top garden for public events including the beloved Christmasmarket and Sechselüüte.
This oasis is a connection point for several public spaces, each bringing its traffic, each at its own pace. The boardwalks opposite the Cinema Corso are foreseen with cut outs for the large trees standing there, experiencing nature from the branches creating direct shadow.
A temporary stage will only be built for the yearly burning of the Böögg. Horses can ride in circles on the top floor.
I see a mum and a dad on the Bürkliplatz, each with a child on their shoulders, watching the man made snowman called Böög explode. The dressed horses run in secure circles around the temporary stage built for this yearly tradition.
I see parents waiting for their children, after the Märli Tram was brought back by Samichlaus, knowing for sure that secure places of connection will belong to this city for ever and ever.
I see a pregnant lady on the boardwalk beside the lake of Zürich pointing to her oldest daughter at a specific spot on the roof terrace where dad asked her to marry her.
