competition "sustainable city and new public spaces" in Gyor, Hungary:
theme: nomadic landscape

We focused on critically analyzing how modern society and consumer culture change and
interact with urban spaces and what it means for a sustainable city development. This
means our providing not only an inspiring city mix of functions, scales and people but
also providing different ways of walking through the city.
In detail we concentrated on the central part of the site where we propose to keep the
original biscuit fabric building,to reuse and redesign it for a mixed use with mainly
sports facilities and student dwellings (according to the programme) which we designed
as a “nomadic landscape”.

Living concept:
The core-building complex of the former biscuit-factory with its huge open areas and high
ceilings is used as a container for student time-based dwelling. We compare the original
building substance with a landscape where you find your place for living for the moment
and with that proposing a new kind of lifestyle.The approach and some design elements
are inspired by nomadic cultures and items such as tents and umbrellas where you build
your private space spontaneously.
