SEMI-OPEN
REALIZATION COMPETITION

2. PRIZE

Oelsnitz’ development is characterized by a rapid industrialization process. Since the 1850s shaft and tip sites have emerged in several phases, which are linked to one another by railway lines. Superimposing the topography, the historical path connections and the mead lines, a complex framework emerges in which fragments of settlements and agricultural areas are inserted. Within this framework, the track plateau of the former goods yard stands out due to its exposed and central location.

The design concept captures the special features of the track plateau. The fragments of the former goods yard usage are being linked among one another. The sequence comprises the Abrollberg, the ladder tracks, an elongated meadow, the station’s forest and the pond landscape.

Various views to the adjacent shaft and tip sites are inserted into this linear space figure. They integrate the surrounding mining sites via visibility and pathway connections.
