With office centres, innovative housing estates, and university facilities it’s no surprise that Zurich North is the most dynamic part of Switzerland's largest city.

In his contribution to the new book “Zürich Nord” that launched last week, Kees Christiaanse evaluates the large-scale urban plans of the past 20 years. In an international comparison, he praises the high diversity of uses within these developments.

"In contrast to many large-scale projects in other Swiss cities and abroad, the three neighbourhoods are characterised by a relatively high mix of uses -from the beginning- further reinforced by excellent public transport connections. High-quality open spaces such as the MFO Park, Oerliker Park, Louis Häfliger Park and Traugott Wahlen Park in Neu-Oerlikon, the Leutschen Park and Hunziker Square in Leutschenbach, as well as the Glattpark Lake and Opfiker Park -in combination with clear street structures- form a solid framework for future, low-asphalt, transformations."
