Landscape Design Implementation Competition Two Parks at the Friedrichswerder


The "Planwerk Innenstadt" envisaged small residential buildings being built on the Friedrichswerder, orientated on the historical street plan, and two green areas. For the redesigning of these parks a limited open design implementation competition was started in May 2005.

The aim of this concept was to find a concept for contemporary inner-city parks of high recreational value. The brief specified that clear and simply-designed public spaces were to be created on the Friedrichswerder, which were free from any overloading of the representative environment. The prize-winner is the landscape architect Gabriele G. Kiefer, Berlin.

The jury praised the central urban theme with its tension between urban representation and manifold exemplification. Diverse usage requirements and creative ideas - such as the melting of urban park, urban garden and square - are harmoniously and simply brought together in this proposal and achieve a high quality.
