ZÜRICH / SWITZERLAND / 2004 /
URBAN REALM STRATEGY & PUBLIC LIFE - PUBLIC SPACE SURVEY
CLIENT: CITY OF ZÜRICH


Lake Zürich and several lifeless new city districts emerging in the periphery questions of urban life and quality are high on the public agenda in Zürich.

Gehl Architects have assisted the local authority through a ‘Public Life - Public Space Survey’ transforming the planning culture in the public sector. Based on this work the local authority has prepared a significant strategic plan that will implement public realm improvement over the coming decades and established cross-departmental task forces to reflect the new agenda in its organisational structure.
