In German, the term “Hängepartie” (an adjourned game in chess) also describes a time of uncertainty, of stalling or waiting – the very state that has been shaping our everyday lives since the outbreak of the pandemic which forced us into isolation.
There were hardly any public places where you could meet friends without hesitation; that would offer room for making new acquaintances, spontaneous exchange, or just “silent” company.
After thoroughly analyzing various public spaces in Linz, we chose Pfarrplatz to realize our vision: an open air space where you can meet people with sufficient distance or just “hang around” and “chill”.
