Based on Hamburg’s ambition to become “car-free”, the project proposes a pedestrian route beginning at Saint Erich’s Church and ending at the summer garden allotments of Billehuder Insel. Based on the theories of Kevin Lynch for identifying sequences of events and activities, the route is composed of a series of nodes allowing the establishment of visual connections with landmarks around the site. The sequences of this promenade include the Rothenburgsort Switch Station, mixed use recreational buildings (retail and leisure) and a residential complex.
