Theses about ideas and urban structure 1. The Masterplan for Leuschnerplatz is synonymous for the logical development of the south city with the metropolitan demand. 2. The City-South is the key point for the merger with the area of the "Südvorstadt". The suburbs are integrated into the functional and spatial concept of the center city. 3. With the City-Süd / Leuschnerplatz the ring is further developed as an important urban element. The ring becomes a distinctive space and follows the city-design visions of the city architects of the 19th and 20th century like Hugo Licht, Arwed Rossbach or Max Pommer. 4. The development of the city is consistently extended from the city center via the promenade and the ring to the south city. 5. The City-South / Leuschnerplatz becomes an autonomous, viable district and developing there own attraction. 6. The functional and architectural diversity develops analogously to the characteristics of the center city and becomes a unique feature.
7. Public space is defined by spatial quality and sequences. It corresponds with the public glass-covered passages and halls, such as Les Hallès / Markthallepassage, market hall and redefinition of glass roof above the "bowling center" (integration of monument). 8.
