Vorschlag zur Leerstandsbildung in Zürich – Proposition of forming Vacancy in Zurich

with 2 comments

Zurich doesn’t know the fact of “Leerstand”. As part of research purposes, circumstances and handling of Vacancy will be proposed to the city.

First of all, possible sites for temporary vacancies will be documented. Therefore, the focus will be on public places – the vacancies should be visible and accessible spaces, to underline the need of this project. Furthermore, the main focus will be set on transition places as underpasses, backyards, passages, Bus-/Tram stations. These locations offer ideal conditions to create an enclosed space, by supplementing building components (walls, etc.) – an important premise to construct vacancies.

While the representative offers the closures of these places for a certain time, they will be declared to vacancies.
