Baesweiler, a small German town near Aachen, decided to return to its citizens a burden dump that was used in the former mining industry but had been abandoned since 1975. Moreover, this project was meant to be the starting point for the development of a technology park.
The result was an extraordinary construction challenge. The project was awarded the German Landscape Architecture Prize 2009.
