A-U-R-A UCC (1.264KB)

The competition asked to study, reposition and redesign architecturally relevant buildings of Cologne that were exemplary for their time within the contemporary economic, social and cultural context of Europe.

Six paradigmatic buildings were selected by the curators due to their central position within the actual debate and as representative examples of the discourse about an evidently failed post-war utopia. Each participant should encounter, comment or respectively redesign these buildings by means of one single image.

A new 'green' carpet wraps the supermarket into a continuous landscape. Excessive density is reduced; newly programmed activities are placed as huts on top of the high rises.
Chorweiler could look forward to a face-lift of its identity, of its diversity and openness - something to fall in love with!
