Münster Oxford Barracks (2020)
We have in the past referred to German competitions as ‘Learning by Loosing‘, the Oxford Barracks was no exception. According to the jury report almost everything was wrong in the BOLLES-WILSON upgrading of military leftovers into a new Residential Quarter.
– Too many cars in the neighbourhood square
– Too much colour in the facades
– The brick housing, too enclosing
– Even though 80cm of earth was required on top of underground garages, interpreting this as a cherry
orchard was according to the jury – wrong.
NEVERTHELESS WE STILL LIKE THE ATMOSPHERE.
