A Square in Pin-stripe

Europaplatz in front of Graz Main Railway Station is going to be redesigned. Viennese architectural firm Zechner & Zechner plans to move the tram stop underground and redesign the free space above ground. Planned transport facilities are combined with a lined, quasi pin-striped urban landscape, while polygonal plant plots and an undulating lawn topography will not only enhance the place, but create additional possibilities of use.

Client: ÖBB, City of Graz
Redesign Architecture: Zechner & Zechner, Vienna
Completion: April 2013
Collaboration: Christian Haid, Lisa Gràcia, Michael Klein, Philipp Rosenecker, Ulrike Bruns, Veronika Mungenast
