By organizing the parking areas as compactly as possible in a shelf-like structure of about 110m length and 16m width, space for public uses was to be created. In addition to a landscaped plaza area – the “Esslinger Platz” – stores, a café, a bakery a kiosk with outdoor seating areas and a bicycle store with workshop were planned. The building was to be wrapped in an articulated, semi-transparent dress of expanded metal and partially planted with vines. The architecture as such, would also have been activated as a playable space for the public. In addition to a green roof area with leisure facilities, which was to be accessed via impressive stair cascades, a spectacular climbing wall was envisaged in the air space between the stairs, making the users of the building visible actors in the urban space.
