The competition entry 'Parterre – Raumpark meets multifunctional square' for the urban realization competition ZwiDeWi is designed as a free and intermediate space that creates a connection between the Vienna River, Vienna Valley, and the market area, facilitating cohabitation between humans, animals, and plants. The design offers a sequence of spatial qualities, providing diverse atmospheres and spaces for development. In this central location, a new habitat for flora and fauna is established.
The design is organized into four spatial sequences: The Stadtwildnis creates a natural space with high biodiversity, serving as a habitat for various animal and plant species. The Raumpark disrupts orientation and offers intimate, vegetated areas and relaxation opportunities. The Park-Platz remains a versatile area that adapts to the needs of city dwellers. The Bauernmarkt expands the existing market and provides space for temporary market stalls. Soil treatment is tailored to the needs of each zone, from new vegetative soils to preserving existing asphalt and using circular materials for the flooring.
The Parterre contributes to climate resilience by acting as a fresh air corridor for the city, creating microclimatic improvements. As a planned urban wasteland, it promotes biodiversity and serves as a natural habitat for animals and plants. The main objective of the concept is to use spaces multifunctionally, support individual appropriations, and provide the maximum number of spaces that can be used by humans, animals, and plants alike. The Parterre is not a place for events or consumption but rather a 'positive place' for all stakeholders in the city.
