Competition for the creation of a neighbourhood park adjoining the Vienna Central Railway Station

Commendations for the Atelier Dreiseitl and PlanSinn consortium in the closed, single-stage landscape architecture design competition.

The object of the competition was the 6.7-hectare neighbourhood park in the immediate vicinity of the future Vienna Central Railway Station, which is currently under construction. Thoroughfare for strolling and vast open space: the long C-bend pathway functions as a backbone connecting the new neighbourhood with the railway station. The apparent polarity of nature and urbanity creates dynamic synergies in this park. All rainwater accruing in the park, and optionally even the run-off from the surrounding new buildings, is used in the park.
