Gentrification and
Public space:

JUNE 2021

History and Theory of Urban Design - ETHZ


The objective of this elective course was to analyse the process of gentrification at a chosen public space in Zurich. I chose to analyse the Lettenviadukt in Zürich-West as it bears the potential to either connect or dissect the district. Through a drawing, an essay and photography I analysed the viaduct and its surroundings.
