The Re-animation of the Historic Axis

Vienna has a rich history which has defined the city since the 19th century, when the Austrian Empire was at the pinnacle of its influence and status in Europe. The legacy of this Empire defines the historic centre of the city, but there exists a disconnection between this ‘heart’ and the new, commercial ‘head’ of the city which lies across the Danube. The ‘Praterstrasse’ Masterplan connects the two sides of the city by reanimating the historic axis of Praterstrasse, which was once a prominent parade extending across the city.
Through the pedestrianisation of Praterstrasse and the creation of new public realm we aimed to achieve the following ambitions:
-To improve the quality of life for those residing and working in the area by improving public realm and encouraging future development
- To connect the city to its many, defining waterways
- To provide high quality green spaces across the city
- To encourage a more sustainable lifestyle through the adoption of modes of transport other than the car
