The elements of the square: The traffic-free square area will be screened off from traffic by anarbour as a spatial and functional element.

This houses a bus stop, 6 kiosk-type buildings, a public toilet, a bicycle park and a special waste disposal station. Planting with wisteria softens the visual effect of the square and provides acoustic insulation. Behind the arbour, the buildings provide functional support for areas that can be used for activities of various kinds.

In its radial overall concepts, the quadratic path gridding emphasizes its independence and, like the overall design, can be seen as a measure to continue traditional design elements of municipal garden and square without touching the existing trees. >
