Manegg
urban study
1999 - 2004
Zurich, Switzerland
The City Architect for Zürich initiated a study for Manegg, an industrial neighborhood whose property owners had formed a consortium for redevelopment. The goal of the study was to develop through a public / private working process, determination of land use, densities, and updated functions for the neighborhood.
A series of workshops were held with city planners, city architects, traffic engineers, public parks representatives, housing advocates, environmental assessors, architects, property owners, and a developer.
Through the workshops, it was established that in order to provide increased public space use as well as to encourage profitable rebuilding by property owners, significant changes would be made: zoning of the neighborhood would be changed, streets changed to accommodate future traffic flow, public use zones and amenities broadened, and densities increased.
Implementation is in process for zoning changes
