During the last decade, the industrial village of Hinwil near Zurich has become the shopping centre of the region. It has accumulated a disproportional amount of new retail space and thereby turned into what we call a ‘Big Box-Village’. ‘Hinwision’ takes a critical yet pragmatic approach to the now problematic, former industrial area and suggests several concepts and strategies that support an economically, socially, and culturally sustainable urban future for the area.
