Riebeckplatz – Halle, Germany

Urban development proposal for the redevelopment of the area of Riebeckplatz in Halle (Saale), Germany.

New buildings frame the Riebeckplatz, and four tower-like “portiers” connect the four quarters around the square visually with each other. A red-blooming carpet made from seed-bombs puts the fly-over in scene and welcomes the incoming.

-1 level is turned into a new programmed public space. It connects the four quarters around Riebeckplatz und is used by pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

Bridge Day: A Car-Free Sunday Event allows the inhabitants to use the fly-over to cycle, to walk and to skate – and to get a new perspective on the usually car-dominated Riebeckplatz.
