Masterplan ETHZ-Hönggerberg, Zürich

This involves breathing new life into a mono-functional university campus dating from the 1960s and make the ETH campus a “Science City”. The master plan aims to make the campus more attractive and as such more competitive in comparison with international universities. The focus is on blending facilities. Housing, shops, sport and entertainment facilities will alongside one another and upgrade the car-free outside area. The planners are working intensively on the question of how to create urbanity in modern structures. In addition to the new master plan and construction of new buildings on the site they developed an extensive communication and events strategy that aims to integrate the Hönggerberg campus more closely in downtown Zurich. Anouk Kuitenbrouwer from KCAP Zurich presented the project at the IBA_LAB N°1 in Heidelberg.
