The design proposal for a new tramway line in the city of by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands aims to revive the city’s original tram system which was installed in 1859 and ceased in the 1960s. The project will provide enormous strategic improvement in public transport in Luxembourg and hopes to achieve a new standard of urban space for Europe. The new tram line is a central element in the Government of Luxembourg’s sustainable mobility or “MoDu” strategy, which sets out to improve transport connections across the city.

The Luxembourg Pavilion for the 2012 Venice Biennale, entitled Futura Bold? Post-City: Considering the Luxembourg case, is a speculative exploration of the future issues that cities of the 21st century will be facing. Using Luxembourg as a case study, Post-City seeks an attitude toward the forces of the urban environment instead of concluding with an urban proposal.  Post-City poses pertinent questions that arise from Luxembourg’s urban conditions today.  Posed as a platform for discussion, the pavilion will be on view at the Ca’ del Duca as part of the 2012 Venice Biennale until November 25th.

Join us after the break for more on this project.

Luxodrome / Charles Wagner

© Philipp Ohnesorge

The proposal for the Luxodrome, designed by Charles Wagner, is a concept started after analyzing the recent topography of a velodrome, which is most of the time just a circle built by two lines and two half circles. With tracks still looking like a hundred years ago, even though cycling as a sport has developed rapidly over the years, this project aims to demonstrate the look of a future velodrome. This is why the track itself has to change to be up to date for all the different race formats. More images and architect’s description after the break.
