2003, Rorschach, Switzerland
In 2003 West 8 together with Vehovar Jauslin Architekten won the competition for redesigning the Bodensee waterfront in Rorschach.
It is not only a well-designed public quay that is easily accessible and situated at the city’s edge, more importantly this created emptiness is a gift for the spirit. A place for dreams. Where early morning fog hides the sea. Where water sparkles under the bright afternoon sun. A sense of foreboding in the heavy weather combination of dark clouds and angry waves. And sometimes, a tranquil place with an amazing view.
