The promenade of Marzahn connects the shopping center Eastgate with the Marzahn Freizeitforum over a distance of about one kilometer. As a spatial sequence, it combines corridor-like sections and square-like expansions.

The aim is to restore a spatial context and to emphasize the transitions to the surrounding neighbourhoods. The interventions focus on the route of the promenade, a more precise path layout and the conjunction between the promenade and the surrounding area.

Along the Franz-Stenzer-Straße, the promenade is composed of a stony and a green side. The specific peculiarities of the two sides of the promenade and their relationship to each other is to be developed more concisely. To do so, the interface between the two sides is emphasized. As a continuous guiding element it facilitates orientation and positioning within the promenade. In its course, it reacts to the adjacent spatial and functional situations. For this purpose, it incorporates stairs, seating arrangements, transitions and path ends.

The cultural space Victor-Klemperer-Platz receives a new focus in its southern area. The intended uses are combined in a common ‘carpet’ of different fields. Each field is characterized by a principal material and at the same time undertakes a certain use. A crossing of the square over the 'carpet' remains possible. The tree population is to be largely preserved.
