Today, the Grand Municipal Council of the City of Zug approved the project loan for the new construction of the recycling center by 29 to 5 votes. The joint venture between Ökihof, Brockenhaus and GGZ@Work, a social enterprise of the Gemeinnützige Gesellschaft Zug, is intended to create a future-oriented recycling department store, where people can dispose of, repair, exchange and shop. The "multifunctional center for ecological and social sustainability" was particularly praised for its urban integration and the use of wood as a building material for the workshop.
We are pleased to be able to submit the application for the building permit this summer. The people will have the ultimate say: The public vote, originally planned for 17 May, will probably take place in September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If the electorate supports the project, construction will start next year to make the new recycling centre available to all inhabitants of Zug from autumn/winter 2022.
Since the end of March, Michael Wagner has been giving the urban planning lecture at ETH Zurich in front of empty seats. As all ETH buildings are closed due to the COVID-10 pandemic, only the basic lectures may be recorded there. All lectures are also streamed live for the students at home.
In the spring semester of 2020, Michael Wagner and the architect Nadine Jerchau-Gay will give a seminar on urban analysis at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. The seminar is entitled 'An der Umfahrungsstrasse' (Along the bypass road) whereby students explore the productive urban landscape in the valley of the Kleine Emme and create short film portraits of selected protagonists on site. The works will be presented at the HSLU in May 2020. (image: Fahrni/Pavic/Schlapbach, 2020)
As part of the series 'CA Positions' of the Department of Design and Art at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Michael Wagner gave a talk about the challenges and potentials of imaging urban landscapes.
With great pleasure, after months of intensive work with the authorities, we received the building permit for the new apartment building at Klosterstrasse 9 in Klettgau.
Further information on the project will follow soon.
