(but it might be very much)
Schallmooser Strasse is a particular area within the city of Salzburg. As one walks further away from the touristic pedestrian street Linzer Gasse towards the neighborhood of Schalmoos, the disconnection with the historical center is strongly felt. The Kapuzinerberg becomes an intruder in the city, as the buildings resting at its base lay in a state of confusion between the main street and the intimidating slope behind them.
The tension within the built and the natural environment creates uncertain areas with high urban potential that are presently treated as residual space, used for parking or storage.
The seven proposals explore this relationship as new possibilities, establishing different links between the two environments.
The projects were developed during the diploma semester with Jan De Vylder at the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio.
