Square design | 1st Prize | Competition | Sonnenplatz, Dortmund, Germany

Sunlight square

The design adds a roughness to the center of the Sonnenplatz: a new kind of urban nature that becomes visible on the surface. A shimmering, light silver grove of heat-loving species and sandstone formations that allow light to appear in a variety of ways through different surface treatments. No sundial, no sunbeams as ornament, but sun in its pure landscape quality: light and shadow!
