Andermatt design competition, Switzerland

The Swiss Alps town of Andermatt has launched an international design competition to masterplan and design its new downtown area development

The project aims to build a new railway station, sports centre and ‘Valley Station’ shuttle train terminal on a ‘low-lying’ triangular shaped site which links the old Andermatt village to a new resort.

Entries should consist of urban planning designs that incorporate ‘attractive’ mixed-use schemes and ‘interesting’ spatial development, according to the brief.

A statement from the competition organisers said: ‘This new downtown area will eventually become a vibrant hub, where locals, resort guests and day visitors will meet. Designs should reflect this, as well as effectively linking the two parts of the village.

‘The international teams will be expected to plan a variety of public uses, such as leisure facilities, attractive promenades, squares and adventure areas as well as a range of services including cafés, restaurants, shops, health care institutions and apartments. Wide open green spaces should be included in addition to the buildings, streets and squares.’
