Refresh Hardturm in Zurich

At the end of May 2017, the Baupiloten together with the inhabitants of the cooperative housing estate Hardturm carried out the workshop „Finalization“.

This workshop was the last in a series of participation processes for the ongoing project „Refresh Hardturm!“, Which deals with the transformation and upgrading of the communal areas of Hardturmstrasse in Zurich. The coop settlement belongs, amongst other housing estates in Zurich to the housing cooperative Kraftwerk 1.

Based on the findings of the previous two workshops, design approaches were developed and presented. „Finalization“ offers room for understanding and offers the possibility to go deeper into the design by means of so-called Theme-Tables and to give us architects constructive criticism. The designs are then optimized based on these findings.
