teyr ‚Die alte Eisenstadt‘ forms at the confluence of the two rivers Enns and Steyr an essential regional urban fabric in the east of Upper Austria. The City plan clearly shows the natural conditions and the historical development. But the existing fractures in the city structure are due not only to the topography of the two river valleys, but also to the monofunctional islands which have emerged through suburbanization of the last decades. On the hill above the historical center the district ‚Alter Tabor‘ forms the focus of detailed view, but the area cannot be separated from the northern district ‚Resthof‘. The punctual dense structure of the two districts has numerous of gaps and conveys an exchangeable suburban impression, because of functional buildings of low spatial quality. The strategy and the resulting concept forms the basis of a clear future development for the connection of the two districts. The translation of the concept into an urban planning design creates a symbiosis of the idealized statement of the concept and the existing morphology. The public space is being reorganized and, instead of the suburban substance, an identity structure is formed.
