Facade Competition 1st Prize
In a cooperative competition procedure, alternative facade proposals were to be de-veloped for the above mentioned building project by Hochtief Formart in cooperation with the Swiss architects Marazzi + Paul. ASP Architekten were awarded a first prize and designed the facades of blocks one and two. The monolithic effect of the three-dimensional structure is emphasized by light brick facades alternating with self-contained wall areas and floor-to-ceiling apertures. The interaction between clear principles of alignment and the gratuitous arrangement of the individual "mosaic stones" is characteristic. The result is a vibrant effect associated with the significance and sustainability worthy of this residential quarter.
