Temporary landscape
Deutz Port Cologne

The Deutz port in Cologne is one of the city’s great potentials. In the direct vicinity of the Rhine and with a view on the cathedral, the area is situated in a unique environment. Nevertheless, the area is almost unknown today and is only perceived as industrial wasteland.

In the future major changes are planned; a new district is to be created at Deutz harbor. The task was to transform the harbor into an exciting urban space by means of temporary installations even today, before the construction work begins. How can landscape architecture transform an unknown area into an exciting place?
