2nd Prize (runner-up) EUROPAN 9 competition for young architects. Linz, Austria

Originating as a germ, URBAN SWITCH is located onsite with the aim of initiating a regeneration process at a local level. The project is conceived as an urban nucleus, which includes public spaces, multiple facilities, and high density both uses and programs, together with a transportation hub.

Partially degraded, the intervention is an activation and renewal strategy for the area. The project lies in the creation of a new concept of urban structure that serves as a reference for future developments of the city.
