2009 / Kaufbeuren / Kemptner Tor

In response to the heterogeneous scale and age of the buildings on Kemptner Tor square, a new playground and fountain provides a uniform, subtly modulated ground plane.
The topography of the site and main spatial nodes are given a rhythmic progression between the historic city and future shopping areas, maximising sight lines and circulation throughout.
The designed elements invite the city to linger here.
