Glass roof over public space, Wolfsburg

Gutachtenwettbewerb - invited competiton, 2007

The design of the new Porschestraße was aimed at giving continuity and calm to the fragmented appearance that had resulted from disparate, obliquely angled buildings inserted along it. Our design is part of this focus on continuity. A glazed roof level is carried by upward soaring steel ‘tree columns’. These ‘tree columns’ continue the rows of trees on the street, yet through the change from natural to artificial trees set a special accent.
