‘The plan shows the excellent suitability of the area for the construction of a centre of public life and the as yet non-existent monumental city centre...‘ Gustav Gull (1858–1942)
One hundred years ago, three teams of architects have responded to the utopia of merging the municipal administration with the building, social and economic centre – an utopia that was only partially realised – with three different strategies, but with the same goal: to create well-designed work spaces for modern, team-oriented and citizen-oriented administration and to exploit the potential of historical buildings.
