The unfortunate Act by a city architect, Belibo

The Name Belibo come from "any", say, which looks at the city architect. He even claims to go back to an old Ticino dynasty – only the Name has no address directory. For Belibos did in Zurich are to be found on every corner. For example, on the bottom of the Bahnhofstrasse. There you will see a Baugespann for an advertising screen. 10 digital advertising systems are already on the sidewalks of the city, in two years it will be 30. This is remarkable for two reasons: firstly, digital need an advertising medium more energy than conventional billboards, and contradict all the efforts of the red-green Zurich for the intended 2000-Watt-society. Secondly, resist new poster pillars speak to the mission statement of the city Council for the design of public space: Zurich is to be open, barren and colourless elegance in Anthracite.

More power consumption, in spite of the savings contract, sidewalks are adjusted in spite of instructions to Declutter? "This is not a contradiction," says the city architect, unasked, "the dynamics. New technologies require flexible Action. The 4.5 million Swiss francs of revenue per year are not to be despised." And what is with the tram stop in exchange street, which is now called the cantonal Bank? What technology has made this necessary? Belibo smiles: "Good question. I have helped a little. A little inconsistency is a part of life."

But always Belibo

Actually, the practice of the Zurich transport authority is: name must have for the purpose of orientation inventory. Therefore, the stop pension is prison always prison, nor pension, although the company is called long Swiss Life. Exceptions are made VBZ so far, only in the case of new audience magnet: the Toni-Areal, instead of Dutt because of the bridge, Sihlcity Nord instead of Utobrücke. But the ZKB is a hit with the public? Then the parade would mean space, Yes, sprüngli is the place.

The ZKB is noticed with a special treatment earlier. After completion of the Renovation in 2015, you could curb your metric tons heavy rhinoceros – a work of art out of iron from the entrance to the sidewalk, although it's the stated goal of the civil engineering office was to let the newly designed Bahnhofstrasse slim and lightweight appearance.

Is this a violation of the principle of frugality, the work of city architect, Belibo? We wanted to ask him but he always disappears in the basement of the old public officials homes. That was also the Elmar Ledergerber, when he took over in 1998 as a freshly elected city Council, the building construction Department. There, the homeowners ' Association ran the door for him a undbeschwerte on arbitrary conditions. The accused employee, however, denied any arbitrary and refer to the instructions of the city architect. Leather Gerber established a task force with the mission: Find Belibo! However, the task force took place in the offices of the higher cadres of a dozen disappeared felt paintings from the city art collection. That it could not interrogate the task force, gave impetus to the fluids, a city architect. A selection of his works of the inconsistency:

All the chairs, umbrellas, and plant pots on squares and streets, and was originally intended as open space (Sechseläutenplatz, Münsterhof, Rennweg). The Tulip trees and red oaks that were planted on the six-ringing place, even though they bear the climate of the city. The new waste bucket with the large hole and the horizontal cover, although, until recently, the Abfallhai was praised for his small throat (against waste bags) and for the oblique cover (no storage space for cans and pizza boxes).The extension of the trolley bus 31 up to Witikon, although the VBZ know that long lines mean delays.The bonded Werbetrams, although the city Council has always maintained, is not fully advertising in question, because the blue-white Trams are the visiting card of the city.

The list shows clearly how volatile are the resolutions of the Zurich city administration, and how Belibo in the old city Builder-interference Tradition in everything. If you ask the Participants, how it came to these decisions, the same responses: The city builders showed up one day, of course, in the working group and argued expertly and eloquently. All respondents were impressed by Belibos natural authority, enhanced by its title: dipl. Arch. ETH/SIA/HMO/HSV/ADHD. His favorite saying was: "Just do it." As the work groups made up of employees passed various Offices, all, Belibo had been delegated by another Department.

Responsible for the work of the administration, the city Council is ultimately. We would like to have known in what relation he stands to the city architect. Belibo has a mandate? He is asked by the city Council to the Council or actively? And: What is a expert who is not on any payroll earn? However, the city Council is silent – official secrecy. So we must take hold of their own conclusions.

For each legislature sets the city government's priorities and published these with a lot of Pathos. Currently: city Council to digitize, days school to develop more safety on the bike. But there has never been the focus of "act consistently" or "principles to follow". Voilà: The city architect, is behind it.

not so bad, the happy natures. Prefer a couple of sun umbrellas on the Sechseläutenplatz, as there charring. Also you will pass the same validity, if you see in a year, the new Tram. In the world, the Trams are always round and aerodynamic. However, as Zurich looks New? As the bus shelter on the parade square from the year 1928. A üblerer break with the style and elegance it is hard to imagine. What can we rubs to introduce us but good: How Belibo about his most outrageous Coup was the hands.
