Double

F├╝rstenwalde, DE 2001

The square between city hall and the Galgenberg in the city of F├╝rstenwalde is characterized by the heterogeneity of its surroundings: residential buildings, shopping malls, and parking lots. On the square are a number of conventional urban furnishings, but all doubled and mirroring each other on two axes. The stereometric structure of the ensemble turns the surface into the center of a new order and defines the site as a cohesive inner city square. From the bench through the bicycle stand to the traffic-blocking bollards, everything except the central table object is present twice. On the stage of this mirrored and doubled square, the visitor takes the leading role.
