schi n dler awards 2012, swi t zerland, bern Introduction

With a population of 131’000 and an economy focused on federal and cantonal government, Bern, the capital of Switzerland, is not an economic hot spot by any means. When ranked by size, Bern takes only fourth place among Swiss cities. In reality though, this small city surrounded by a splendid landscape, having a lively historic old town, attractive cultural institutions, universities and last but not least, the Aare River Gorge – is a charming place ranked among the world’s top ten cities for the best quality of life! 1.1 History • To make a long story short, here’s the history abstract of Bern: • 1191 town founded by the Duke of Zähringen • 1191 – 1789 the town grows in size and influence and in 1648 becomes an independent city republic. It dominates its surroundings and conquers territories as far away as French Burgundy. • 1789 - French conquer Bern and install a new political order that ends the reign of the feudal Bernese families. The formerly independent city state becomes a Swiss canton • 1848 Bern becomes the capital of the newfound Swiss Federation with the seats of parliament and government. • 1848 – 1980 the formerly successful Bernese economy, based on a rich agrarian sector and an excellent road infrastructure, is surpassed by competitors more focused on industry (Basel, Zurich) or trade (Zurich, Geneva) • 1980 – 2010 Bern finds comfort and pride in being the capital and focuses on improving its urban quality, culture, education, and quality of life. • 2011 Bern hosts the Schindler Award The Site Schützenmatt – Eilgut The site chosen for the Schindler Award 2012 is located at the north-west corner of athe old town, in an area once occupied by the fortifications and the military training grounds, which protected the western approaches up to end of the 18th century. Today only a small stretch of the town wall and the names of the defining streets and squares Langmur, Bollwerk, Grosse Schanze, Schützenmatt15 remind us of the once imposing fortifications. With the fortifications leveled, the area became available for a number of new functions, today still present but no longer in use as originally intended: • Eilgut - the freight yard for express freight – now but a small shunting yard, depot and car park for railway employees • Reitschule – the riding school – now used as an autonomous centre of alternative culture • Tierspital – the animal hospital – now used by the mathematics faculty of the Bern University (Note: Tierspital is not part of the competition perimeter). Always an important access from the north and the east of the town, traffic infrastructure took over more and more of the area. With the construction of the rail and road bridge rote Brücke in 1858, the rules for Bern’s urban development were drastically altered. From now on Bern was linked to the growing system of railway lines beginning to crisscross Switzerland - the train station situated at the western end of the town’s central axis and the southern end of Bollwerk would soon become the main traffic hub of the city. At the same time, the raised track of the railway line effectively blocked all development in the area between the former city wall at Bollwerk and the former outer defense line of grosse Schanze.



Mastering the urban challenge of the Schützenmatt would require an allencompassing overhaul of the area - some of the existing conditions however can’t be changed or will be influenced by the envisioned massive expansion of the Bern railway station55. Our competition therefore shall concentrate on the following interventions: Urban Renewal Concept A new master plan including new and existing facilities shall rectify the urban shortcomings mentioned in chapter 4 and allow for a more attractive use of the area now dominated by extensive traffic infrastructure. We challenge you to: • Propose a new utilization concept with the focus on urban repair and quality of public space • Find the balance between maximal sustainable density and protection of the nearby cultural heritage • Propose a mix of functions optimized to achieve an attractive day and night-time use for a wide variety of users, visitors and passers-by • Propose an adequate urban answer to define the north-west corner of the Neustadt, the south-western bridgehead of the Lorraine Bridge and the entrance to the city from Tiefenaustrasse at Eilgut • Propose an adequate link from the Altenberg residential area and the river path up to the city and up to the Alpenegg - Länggass residential area • Strengthen the link between the Reitschule cultural center and the cultural institutions south-east of Schützenmatt • Chose the traffic concept best suited to your master plan River Valley Access The splendid valley of the Aare River, the wooded slope and the historic city wall are now inaccessible to all but the fittest. You are challenged to: • Connect the river path with the higher city levels of Schützenmatt and Alpenegg in order to improve access between the city, the recreational areas along both sides of the river and the residential area Altenberg • Redefine the slope of the Aare Valley as the start or end point of the attractive excursion trails that lead around the peninsula. Integration of Social Services The dilapidated buildings at the intersection of Hodlerstrasse and Lorraine Bridge are home to the Drogenanlaufstelle. Catering to the needs of drug addicts, this social service on the north-west corner of the UNESCO World Heritage Site is under constant public pressure to move to a place far from the city center and out of sight. Past experience in Bern and other cities show, however, that this would reduce the efficiency of the health program offered there. Therefore we envision relocation into a new building inside the project perimeter. In order to profit from synergies, Alkistübli, the sister institution catering to the needs of alcoholics, is likewise to be integrated into the new facilities. As both institutions rely heavily on public financing, it is of utmost importance that building costs be balanced with income generated through a lucrative user mix offering attractive commercial spaces leased to third parties. Therefore the challenge is set to: • Create a unique address with a attractive mix of users • Design the facilities with the surface allocation given in chapter 7 and integrate them into a new complex inside the project perimeter, without compromising attractiveness for third users • Weave it into the city traffic pattern.


Territory marked by Schindler awards is located in historic center of Bern and has features of positive and negative issues such as a difficult relief and intersection of several infrastructure elements of urban landscape therefore leading to the choice of specific approaches in design. During the initial process of design concept it became clear that the place itself would primary suggest its ideology. A «stereo» concept was identified a sort of multi-level system which through various channels forms the site. It is based on creating a single «barrier-free» space which in the morphology of the city acts as a merging element of urban infrastructure across various areas of the city that are characterized by planning structure, the scale of development and its perception. It is suggested to change the orientation of the environment and bring it back to the society by transition from the degraded territory of transport hub to the green cover on top of the transport infrastructure of the city. This will consequently make an alienated and intermediary space of the urban landscape breathe; it will become a point of attraction, a connecting element of the city. This will enhance the framework of urban structure and give a new dimension to the environment. The final channel in the system is a “virtual” building. It presents a highly intelligent level which generates the possibility of knowledge transfer. It becomes a symbol of life just like in ancient times - the aqueduct - which gave the water meaning life. In general, this system of design concept can be compared to a pyramid of human needs (physiological (biological), the need for security and stability, social, respect, self-fulfillment). There are three levels of life: (1) transportation - service, (2) eco - recreational areas (communication, recreation, friendship, love) and (3) level of knowledge and education which makes it possible to fulfill the main human need for selfrealization and self-development. The main aim of the design concept is to transform the environment in order to create a unified multilevel space of urban and cultural infrastructure that will establish a new environment and - a new life.

Schindler Award 2010 Challenge Meeting the urban challenge of the Pichelsberger Tip would require a complete overhaul of the area. Some of the existing conditions however can’t be changed. Our competition therefore shall concentrate on the following interventions: Urban Concept A new master plan including new and existing facilities must rectify the urban shortcomings and allow better use of the already built up area. • Relocate outdated or dilapidated facilities • Integrate a new hockey stadium and a new hotel that are to be the backbone of a strong urban concept • Organize traffic with parking for cars and tour buses • Create unique identity for the Pichelsberger Tip. Public Space Public space is the focus of urban concept. 22’000 spectators must be able to move between the urban transit station Pichelsberg and the Waldbuhne.

Event capacity, easy orientation for visitors and attractive design are but some of the aspects to be dealt with • Provide adequate public space • Strengthen the area in its function as western entrance to the Olympic Park •Link urban space to natural space of Murellenschlucht and Ruhleben Accessibility Accessibility inside the Waldbuhne and Pichelsberg Station is the topic on a more detailed level of the task. Pichelsberg Station is ill equipped to deal with the expected crowd of any open air concert and only has one well hidden and very slow moving elevator, • Improve accessibility of the Pichelsberg Station • Offer basic services for the passengers of the S-Bahn Waldbuhne has no provisions for handicapped spectators or artists at all. With dilapidated and inaccessible infrastructure and only part of the

uppermost stand accessible for wheelchairs, Waldbuhne is in need of a major overhaul - the historic landmark status of the Waldbuhne makes this part of the task a special challenge! • Improve accessibility of the Waldbuhne • Integrate an appropriate number of seats accessible for all. • Integrate basic services for spectators and artist • Provide adequate access for the trucks of event logistics Accommodation The unique location between the S-Bahn and the Olympic Stadium is well suited for both athletes training at the sport complex and for tourists on a city trip to Berlin. The existing hotel in the Horst Korber Sportzentrum cannot satisfy the growing demand - a new accomodation is necessary. • Conceive a hotel with 150 rooms, seminary, wellness and sport facilities all fully accessible • Exploit synergies between the hotel and the nearby sport complex

Concept The question about restoration, reconstruction and new development in historic part of the city should be guided by multiple backgrounds/ factors/ reasons. From my perspective, the main strategy is to preserve historic looks of the building and not just to set up working space but to create a universal modern site with potential to develop and upgrade.The project also needs to take economic aspects into consideration. This reconstruction project of Manassein house presents not simply the adjustment of the four-floor building but the complex redesign of site. Minimal functional usage of unique historic territory suggested an idea of creating a multifunctional space. The concept idea of the project is to intensify density. This includes building a new 5-floor office center with the underground parking followed by restoration of historic building with recreation development. In this way, such urban approach allows the construction of a modern office structure with 100 parking spots, restaurant, hotel rooms and 2700sq meters of universal space.

How to create motion action? Although the answer to this question seems obvious, and the definition appears to be clear, it is still difficult to grasp this concept. In my work I demonstrate the fundamentals of motion: how it can evolve besides two dimensions, how it can be limited or directed, how to produce intersections of action and what are the consequences of this transformation. Three simple plans create an attractive place with the motion point – a point of crossing of various activities like recreation and contemplation, work and education, life and motion action.
