As part of the new transnational tram line crossing the Rhine river from Strasbourg, France into Kehl, Germany, J.MAYER.H designed bus and tram stops at the central square in Kehl as sculptural compositions based on organic shaped discs.

Strasbourg – Kehl Zollhofareal Competition
Since the early 2000s the two cities have been reinforcing their ties in a process aiming to establish a European transborder metropolis along the Rhine River. The design proposal is at the same time a vision to reunite the two cities/countries around the river and a framework for the urbanization of the site.

Cathedral Building in Strasbourg
Axis Mundi was invited to submit a proposal for a new cathedral for the city of Strasbourg, France. The design is composed of a series of unfolded arches which rest on a submerged “Latin Cross” floor plan. A bas-relief of an abstracted Gothic cathedral will emerge on the eastern facade when the sun rises, and will gradually disappear during the course of the day.

The city of Strasbourg has been developing a new tram-line service to combat increasing congestion and pollution in the city centre. It encourages people to leave their cars outside the city in specially designed car parks, and then take a tram to the more inner parts of the city. The first part of this initiative was the development of Line ‘A’ that ran east to west across Strasbourg.

The outer layer of the Palais is a mosaic of contrasted colours, which are found on the concrete of the buttresses, the aluminium-covered façade and the vast windows of the conference rooms respectively. In front of the Palais the lawn was once the site of the predecessor to the Palais de l’Europe – the Maison de l’Europe.
