Convertible umbrellas can functionally and by an emblematic effect enhance the quality of stay at the “Kulturmeile”. They work as a landmark on the “B14” between the opera house and the “Staatsgalerie”. While the umbrellas are opened pedestrians have priority over the automotive traffic even on the road (shared space). The street should provide space for “smart interventions”, transfer culture to public spaces and temporarily neutralize the barrier by the “city-ring” for pedestrians.
Scope: architectural and structural design
Planning period: 2017
