Conclusion of Vacancy forming in Oerlikon

with one comment

As previously informed, a new Leerstand experiment has been undertaken in Zurich at Oerlikerpark.
This experiment was set in an open park area. The trees in the park and the chosen packing paper emphasised as perfect condition to undertake the new attempt.
Furthermore, the enriching discussion with the public which followed after the successful experiment conceived the vacancy representative to continue and expand her research.

Leerstandsplan Oerlikerpark

Leerstandsplan Oerlikerpark

The Oerlikerpark was newly built in 2001, in a former industrial district of Zurich. It was rewarded as an excellent example of architecture.
Since the industries closed down, Oerlikon changed his face and is becoming a vivid district, attractive to families and city dwellers.

This is an interesting background, to form “Leerstand” – therefore, come, see and learn!
