Planning context ★★★★☆
Thematic planning context:
The City2Share project exemplifies how intelligent linking, especially through joint use and sharing of mobility infrastructure, can reclaim public open spaces and city squares for the neighborhood that were formerly occupied by stationary traffic.

Spatial Planning Reference:
The design of the expansive furniture sculpture aims to unite - at least visually - the spatially separated halves of the square. In open space experiments, ideas from previous participation workshops are transferred to the square. In this way, the discourse on the long-term redesign of the square in the immediate vicinity of the newly emerging Volkstheater is to be promoted.
