Practice wows competition judges with scheme inspired by German garden city movement
Sergison Bates Architects has won a competition to masterplan the development of the 6,000-home second phase of the Freiham district in Munich.
The practice’s proposals also deliver schools and nurseries, community and cultural facilities and new public realm for the expansion area about 15km west of the Bavarian capital’s centre.
It said the Freiham Nord plans had been inspired by the work of architect and urban planner Theodor Fischer, who led Munich’s Office of Urban Expansion from the late 1890s and was part of the German garden city movement.
