SPORTS FIELD IN PARK 5.1
Implementation of an Urban regeneration proposal
The playing field at Leipzig-Grünau was created as the first step of Park 5.1, a project comprising a patchwork of wasteland and open spaces that are to be successively revitalized by the people that buy and/or use them. In the case of the hockey pitch, a successful cooperation between residents and the sporting association, the “Leipzig Sea Lions” led to a planning and contractual agreement (PPP) which guarantees the maintenance and management of the facility, as well as facilitating its parallel usage by the association and the public at all times. Potential future users decorated the perimeter of the playing field with excerpts from prize-winning songs by young Leipzig bands.
