Perlach Plaza is a hub, a signboard, and a calling card. With its urban mixed use of retail, service businesses, restaurants, residential units, and a hotel, it has a central urban-design function in the development of the new KulturQuadrat center on Munich’s Hanns-Seidel-Platz. The heart of the master plan is a 5,000 square-meter park, protectively lined by the surrounding buildings. On the inside of the mixed-use complex, 50,000 square meters of highquality developed floor space are being created, which directly connect the quarter with the subway system, a cultural center, and generous outdoor areas. Design element like gentle arches and inviting arcades make Perlach Plaza atmospherically relate to the market square outside and to the narrow streets and passageways of downtown Munich. The result is a quarter that has local authenticity with an identity-forming dimension. Urbanites and flâneurs will be able to discover for themselves the three-story plinth zone as a lively, high-quality, integrated ensemble - an urban transfer with a green heart and a Munich soul.
