New Bastle, Switzerland - ‘a new city neighborhood’, O.Senn et al
The graphical analytic demonstrations here are a further elaboration of the research done by O.Senn et al for the CIAM 8 congress, for a new city neighborhood urban ‘core’ for a population of 12,000, designed to integrate scattered housing on the southern fringe of Basle.  The definition of the public ope urban spaces is emphasized by keeping the traffic outside of the core, by six thirteen-storey towers of small apartments for visual emphasis, and by shorter lines of five-storey apartments in order to contrast the visual effects.
The new hexagonal church becomes the center of compositional arrangements.
Here are shown the relationships of the church with the adjacent groups of built spaces, demonstrating a variational interpretation of public open urban space arrangements and volumetric proportions.
