Urban-development design Karlsruhe

Year: 1970

This draft design by Verner Panton was intended for an area of the Karlsruhe old town which needed redevelopment. He planned spherical buildings with up to 30 storeys, which were to be spread around a park-like urban landscape. The buildings were to be used for a mixture of commerce, services and residential purposes. The design concept, which also provided for a below-ground traffic system, had little serious chance of being implemented.
