Project Description

Three basic principles were predominant in the redevelopment of the Sechseläutenplatz: open access, planting vegetation and the flexible use of the square.

The pavement of the new square was made from Valser quartzite cut polydirectionally into stone strips. The strips have different widths and lengths and create a parquet look through a corresponding laying pattern. A fountain with underground technical equipment room and gravel islands with assemblies was also integrated in the square.


Special Features of the Project

Various festive events like the Sechseläuten, Züri Fäscht and Street Parade required constructional measures and resulted in interruptions to the construction work. The construction progress of the fountain’s technical equipment room also had to be interrupted for two months due to archaeological digs of pile dweller settlements.

Shafts, gulleys, circus tent anchor points, square heights (minimum incline) and the joint pattern also had to be marked out very precisely. Very high precision was required, which is why inspections and measurements were carried out every day.
