Europaplatz, Berlin

Improvement of the traffic and connection concept

With the implementation of the urban development concept of “Europacity”, the Europaplatz will gain an outstanding position within the urban setting as a junction for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The future congestion of traffic in this location demands a specific and balanced handling with open spaces. The aim was to design a unity of traffic related areas and pedestrian zones. Because of limited geometrical variability of pedestrian areas, spacious paved areas were suggested in which the traffic infrastructure blends in.The northern square is designed as an area with little green spaces and large paved areas. Loosely grouped trees accentuate the promenade in front of future high-rise buildings. This little grove forms a small space which will be used intensively by the surrounding buildings ground floors. The trees are planted in slightly elevated planting beds with an outlined edge which also functions as a seating area. Bus parking lots are located next to the pedestrian plaza.
