This work intends to rethink the city. Instead of a building site, a situation forms the beginning of this concept. Topics like nature, habitational qualities and the non-motorized individual traffic are of secondary importance in todays planning practices. Traffic bands determine the entire city system. Streets are built and spaces in between are filled with domestic architecture. Taken the premise housing bands form the city instead of traffic bands, this project rethinks the city. Following a detailed study of geometrics, including numerous experiments, a band like structure developed which interweaves into one another like an urban textile. Subsequently, the search for an adequate building site was started, with the result of finding an area of allotments in the green Prater in Vienna. These gated communities, with their big and publically not accessible open spaces, is replaced by greened sceneries of housing bands. Continuous and accessible green landscape stretches from the Prater over the ground floor, up until the roofs of this project. Closely connected is not only a place of versatile living, business and working spaces, but it additionally form the basis for certain qualities of life including exercise, communication, regeneration and representation.
