LIN wins international urban competition “Strasbourg - Kehl, Cour des Douanes - Zollhofareal”


The project proposes a masterplan for the former custom posts of Kehl and Strasbourg, 20 hectares along the Rhine – as well as a vision to reunite the two cities/countries along the river.


The development unfolds out of and towards the Rhine. It seeks coherence on a large scale: new developments help reconnecting the dislocated urban fragments already present on the site. The urban structure develops along the infrastructural lines of the site, perpendicular to the river. Thus it enhances its physical and symbolical presence. New bridges and passages help to overcome the many infrastructural borders on the site and generate a multitude of singular urban situations.
