the ‘oesterreichischer platz’ is situated at the edge of stuttgart’s city center. its function has not changed in the last 40 years, it is surrounded by and isolated through highways and used as a parking spot. lars behrendt intends to change the platz with his ‘lotto turm’ project.

the temporary project will be built from 55 piled-up shipping containers, where the building will be divided into two parts. there will be a courtyard that will be isolated from traffic and noise and a high-rise tower which can be scaled by an artificial path around it, as well as by stairs that go directly on top. open to the public ‘lotto turm’ will consist of various zones, terraces and stairways. this will all be topped by a sphere which will host the drawing of the lotto numbers.
