The creation of a coherent, spacious inner courtyard and the joining of the various building elements into a whole will “heal” the current unsatisfactory situation in terms of urban planning and architecture. In order to achieve this result, the courtyard is cleared and a linear building structure is developed along Marschallgasse that relates to the existing building in a specific, precise way. The design assumes the demolition of the structurally and creatively questionable gangway bridge. The structural and functional ring closure around the courtyard will then take place via this new building.
