Project Description by Team: Klagenfurt:Interchange proposes a city quarter that entwines new shortcut connections for active mobility within a continuous urban green network. The project takes inspiration from the intersection of two international networks in Klagenfurt – the Baltic-Adriatic Rail Axis and the European Green Belt – and transforms it into an urban concept. The public structure of the flourishing green Raumpark – a new „Grüner Platz“ in Klagenfurt, adding to the „Alter- and Neuer Platz“– forms the center of the project and represents an all-inclusive approach to living, where human, floral and faunal actors learn from each other. Positioned in direct proximity to the new high speed rail network, Klagenfurt:Interchange has the potential to showcase all-inclusive living to the European public.
