For the redesign of the Sechseläutenplatz in Zurich, the focus was on three basic principles: opening up, greening and flexible use of the square. The surface of the new square was formed from stone belts of Vals quartzite cut to size on all sides.
For the redesign of the Sechseläutenplatz three basic principles were in the foreground: the opening, the greening and the flexible use of the square.
The surface of the new square was formed by stone belts of Vals quartzite cut to size on all sides. These belts have different widths and lengths and create a parquet look through a corresponding laying pattern. A water feature with an underground technical room and pebble islands with assemblies were also integrated into the square.
Various festive events such as Sechseläuten, Züri Fäscht and Street Parade required construction measures and resulted in interruptions to the construction site. Likewise, the construction progress of the technical room of the water feature had to be interrupted for two months due to archaeological excavations of pile dweller settlements.
Shafts, gutters, circus tent guy points, site heights (minimum slope) and the joint pattern had to be staked out very precisely. Very high accuracy was required and therefore checked and re-measured day after day.
