A Skate ramp for Piazza Fontana / Brunnenplatz in Merano
As a part of the planning and execution team of Metamorphosis, in September Lupo Burtscher built a temporary skate ramp in Piazza Fontana / Brunnenplatz in Merano.

The skate ramp will remain in Piazza Fontana / Brunnenplatz until the end of 2018, becoming thus a new meeting place for the neighborhood residents.

A project for urban change and for the transformation of neighborhoods
Angelika Burtscher is since several weeks part of the project team of Metamorphosis Merano. Merano is one of the six cities which take part in the three year long EU-project. Metamorphosis starts from the premise that when a neighbourhood has many children on its public spaces, this is a major indicator that it is well designed as a sustainable neighbourhood. The word sustainability itself is already inseparably combined with children as it implicates “designed for the next generation”.
