  Phasing -   5 years   The city leads the development through its investment in public spaces. The private sector follows these investments and over time citizens inhabit and bring life to the public spaces. With each investment, the public space moves closer to forming a complete whole.

  Green structure  The site is outside of the regions vision for large scale green space. The design provides an additional series of links to the larger framework. The spaces can have a more intimate quality and close mixture of urban and ecological.

  Giving Variety  Monofuctional areas are deemed undesirable, yet the city insists on doing its social housing in large clusters. The standard Vienna technique of a series of efficient social housing blocks is kept; however, they are scattered across the site. This sets the tone that the city itself is serious about creating diverse places.

  Transit Loop    The site is along the northern Vienna transit loop. An additional transit link is brought into the site, using the green seam as a place for bus stops to sit amongst community and green spaces.

  Public Spaces    The northern Vienna area is punctuated by a series of signature public spaces. The ring acts as a complementary and contemporary addition to the series of spaces that give character to each community.

  Siemens inside | outside   The current state of the Siemens site is very introverted, but the public would be highly interested to get a sense of what goes on behind closed doors. Siemens can use the development to showcase its many technological innovations, allowing users to relate directly with the technology. People can directly engage with Biogas, electric charging stations, high tech façade systems, power turbines, and countless other technologies. This will turn the area into an innovation hub, where one can ‘kick the tires’ of the latest technologies.

  Historic diversity starter kit   The historic structures are ideal ‘found objects’ to begin the transformation of the area, immediately. These spaces can be offered to existing young, creative entrepreneurs of the region. It can function as a hub for graphic designers, print companies, architects, artists, etc. These user groups would be happy to congregate and function as pioneers in the area. The addition of such tenants will start interest in the area immediately, as well as spark diversity, attracting a greater array of inhabitants in the long run. Through the building are a series of ‘streets’ allowing for pedestrian flows and opening up the building.

  Parking Strategy    The character of the area will morph greatly over time, the parking strategies must evolve with the place. Step one is to simply move surface parking out of key development zones. The second move is to require each development to house their parking on site. The third phase is to build a few large parking garages, in key areas, as part of larger developments.

  Four Corners    Given the sites current lack of activity, four nodes of activities are placed on the four corners. The four anchors of event, ecology, fitness, and commerce hold each corner.

  Green Seams    Linking the corners are four greenways. These are extensions of the anchor spaces. Allowing places for community gardens, kids play spaces, coffee shops, community centers, etc.

  Diverse Communities    Within the ring and on each side of it, each district does and will have its own character. Allowing each to form their own character, with the green seams as a place for the communities to mix and merge.

  Linked Paths    Despite the ring and the diversity of communities, the paths ways will slide though each zone, linking them. In some cases these paths might be roadways, in others walkways; but the important part is to allow free and easy movement to and from each area.

  Office typology   The office typology is topped by a simple open series of floor plates above, while the plinth at ground is generous. It lines the parking garage and allows for a flexible space that can, in time, evolve to be used for small office, residential/loft types, to commercial uses. Allowing the area to evolve and change in character over time.

  Industrial renovation/inhabitation   The industrial units are allowed to be inhabited as their users desire, but the ground floor use must be of a more public nature – a bookshop, open studio, gallery, café, whatever makes sense with their lifestyle/profession. Loft spaces can be inserted above, allowing for more traditional office spaces and/or loft style living. The goal is to create a vibrant, diverse mix of users that are active at all times of the day.

  Multi-family typology   The multifamily type has a simple series of units topping it, but the base uses the landscape to hide the underground parking on one side and allows housing [or small commercial in time] to face the street on the other side.

  Single family typology   The single family home literally opens up on the ground floor, allowing residents to spend a great deal of time in their generous yards/gardens.

  Siemens triangle   The triangle encapsulates the diversity of the entire area to come with industry, office, hotel, and residential all present on the plaza. The area space is generous to allow for events. These can start immediately. A series of events can be hosted to give more interest to the area and notify the region that the area is going to adapt. They can act as a bit of a PR campaign for the future. Additionally, the area can feature some old relics of some of Siemens past glories. Old turbines and other items, properly lit, will give the area a richness, history, and sense of awe. Obviously, in the long run the current offices that reside in the triangle will have to be torn down and can be replaced with a new office space, along the tracks, framing and acting as a backdrop to the triangle.
