Europan 11 Proposal: ‘Dornröschen’ / NAP

Courtesy of

Through a range of strategies and carefully selected interventions the porcelain-city of Selb in the Fichtelgebirge region in will be elevated to a regional center for art, trade, tourism, and culture. The winning Europan 11 proposal, titled Dornröschen – Reinitializing Selb or ‘Kissing awake the sleeping beauty’, by NAP (Network of Architects & Planners) will act as the nucleus for future development. In juxtaposition to the well-established and intact city center around the church and market square, the porcelain factory will be a second center of gravity creating a new and desired field of tension in between both.
