1/6 Overview of the Project Area
WEIZ ARCHIPELAGO (2019)
industries and gardens, workshops and farms, sheds and palaces
The city of Weiz is situated in the productive landscape of Weiz-Gleisdorf,
a complex system of diverse spaces, de- manding a holistic planning approach.With the construction of the new mobility axis (ODF), Gleisdorfer Straße loses its function as the city’s main transit route.This change in meaning has to be seen as an opportunity for the contiguous neighbourhoods.
No longer a transit space, a set of emerging topics can be tackled to transform the area. The creation of public space is a starting point for future development.The goal of this process is to create a manifold part of town, whose neighborhoods are connected by two linear elements: a transformed street and streetscape and a continuous park along Weizbach.Thereby this area takes a special role in the productive landscape.
