new communities, new polarities – a town in the alpine foothills how a small center becomes a large center.

an international corporation moves its headquarters to the industrial zone of a town in the alpine foothills. about one thousand persons are employed there, most of whom are young creative professionals from all over the world. in an abandoned area in the town center, a new neighborhood is created where this alien community can find room to integrate and to become a resource for the territory.
