Airport City, Düsseldorf
The street space is the intersection between the worlds of traffic and pedestrians: On the one hand there is an overall tree pattern. On the other hand the broad pedestrian area with its subtle topography creates a spatial arrangement perceptible and useable specifically for the pedestrians.
Birch trees characterize the space between the hotel and the main access road to the airport: planted onto the roof of the subterranean garage in differing density, the birch trees with their white boles offer a varying view to traffic participants and observers from the hotel windows above.
The urban garden is an important pedestrian connection to and from the airport. A brick path leads, constantly meandering up and down, trough a planting of ornamental fruit trees. It offers a wide range of perspectives from the bird‘s eye view onto the trees throug to a walk under the shadow of the tree roof.
