Size matters

study project - Msc Architecture / urbanscape program - Liechtenstein university

Liechtenstein is a small country. It is pleasant to visit, a nice place to live in and a challenging work environment. Its small size is often portrayed as one of its strong points. The main consensus is that the country would like to keep these strong points in the future but that there are still opportunities to grow. There is however a danger that Liechtenstein will become a victim to its own success. More people are moving in, more businesses set up offices and the number of commuters rises dramatically. A number of studies envision this continued expansion and thus predict a huge pressure on the little available free space and overall quality of life in Liechtenstein and the broader Alpine-Rhine region. It is therefore of crucial importance that future developments are planned and guided well, this is where Liechtenstein might encounter some serious problems...

To illustrate these issues a pamphlet was created that resembles a political promotion campaign. The pamphlet contained a strategy to reorganize the country's urban planning systems by eliminating the current subdivision in smaller municipalities with great autonomy. The plan also included creating a large historic-natural reserve and a unified planning agency.

The pamphlet was kept small but powerful in accordance with its subject.
