Barcode Architects are working with the municipality of Dresden on the redevelopment of Ferdinandplatz. The 120,000m2 mixed-use masterplan is prominently located in the city centre, and includes a new city hall, shops, offices, a public underground parking garage and ca. 250 apartments. Raoul Schmidt-Lamontain, the Dresden alderman responsible for the project, has described the transformation as “an important building block for completing the urban regeneration of the city centre”. The ‘new’ Ferdinandplatz is expected to reach completion in 2025.
