From the architect. Would you choose between parking and public space?

Paasdorf is a small "street village" in Lower Austria. The task of feld72 was to position "Kulturlandschaft Paasdorf"– an art project that is known far beyond the borders of Austria – by means of a symbol on the village square.

The design attempts to bring together synergetically two formative components: everyday (local population) and attention (visitors).

According to needs that change considerably (both during the day and during the different seasons) the square alters its appearance depending on how it is being used. Village square and car park are not separated into mono- functional zones but blend together to create a unity that can be read and used in a variety of ways. When not occupied by a car almost every parking space is something else - whether it be a wooden terrace , a flat pool of water, a play area, seating, an urban topography...

The bus stop – the Wolkon – functions as a landmark and information compass, It is a kind of "stage" both for everyday life and for special events. The accessible roof is a lounge, DJ 's pulpit, speaker's corner, and open-air gallery....

How public this village square actually is always remains the responsibility of its users.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Kulturlandschaft Paasdorf / feld72" 28 Jul 2010. ArchDaily. Accessed . <>
