1st Prize / Neuer Markt / Rostock, Germany

The medieval square Neuer Markt is one of the most important squares in Rostock, Germany. However, its current state does not comply with this importance. The two-phased urban design competition “Nordseite Neuer Mark” asked to formulate the northern edge of the square and propose the programmatic distribution. After an additional revision by three competition entries the jury recommended SMAQ’s project as basis for the further developement of the quarter north of Neue Markt and thus followed the recommendation of the city advisory board.
