GoSee Recommends: city model or a question of size, we present the next Cologne by Martin Bachem architecture on GoSee

Cologne based architect Martin Bachem designed a new and visionary Cologne. His ‘Stadtplastik’ (city model) reminds us of the Modernist monumental utopia in the early 20th century – and we like it!

You can see Martin Bachem’s vision of Cologne’s future on location: photo montages, which you can download via a QR code on the pavement (from 19 – 26 September), show a high-rise ring in the city centre. We recommend coming to marsil on Friday, where the architect will be explaining his concept in conversation with Christian Heuchel (O&O Baukunst) at Cologne Hotel marsil. We will be there and present his impressive master plan here on GoSee.

Date: Fr 19.09., 20:30, conversation between Martin Bachem and Christian Heuchel (O&O Baukunst)
marsil Hotel Galerie, Marsilstein 25-27, 50676 Köln
