With the new construction of the Viba Event Center in Schmalkalden and in preparation for the State Garden Show 2015, the goal was a representative, use-oriented open space design of the green corridor "An der Fuchsenkothe" as well as the future public Viba Park.
The urban entrance is the generously designed, colorfully accentuated main entrance area to the Viba Event Center with bus stop and visitor parking. The scenic entrance opens up the valley space of the Fuchsenkothe watercourse in the south. Generous meadow and water areas as well as backdrop-like rows of trees give here spatial expanse and integrate as a matter of course the various uses (recreation, play, path references).
The use of plants in the newly designed park refers to the products of Viba Sweets GmbH: nut trees symbolize the raw material for nougat, grasses are reminiscent of cereals, fruit trees, aromatic and scented plants stand for further product components.
