On March 30th, the jury of the restricted competition “Heiersstraße, Paderborn” is taking place. Mr. Prof. Eckhard Gerber is one of the nine judges to find a winning design. In total nine architectural offices were elected to submit their ideas.

The assignment was asking for a new urban integration of the area between Domplatz and Heiersstraße in Paderborn. Different uses should help to cover the needs of the archiepiscopal general vicariate and offer new options for the future.

To upgrade the urban situation in this central location of Paderborn, the new building ensemble is supposed to express itself independently on one hand and treat the historical context with respect and care on the other hand.
