Leutbühel Bregenz (A)

Along with Stefano Presi (Vicenza) and Javier Fernandez Alen (Bregenz), we have participated in the Urban Competition of the Leutbüchel Areal in Bregenz. Our proposal paved the whole area with cobblestones and stone slabs taking care of existing lines and organizing specific areas. We replace the old fountain as a hinge in Leutbüchel square, recalling the italian Piazza de la Signoria-Piazza delle Erbe. A set of Baum-Brunne-Bank (Tree-Fountain-Bench) points out certain places, providing pleasant stops along the irregular streets of the old city. Two long distance perspectives to a prominent but empty old dividing wall gave us the idea to build a Kunstrahmen (Frame for art): an abstract bearing structure for multipurpose activities. Lines of tall trees (Quercus Robur Fastigiata) transform the streets-for-cars in pedestrian urban areas.
