We believe that it is necessary for the long-term spatial development strategies for Zürich
to be based on and address certain intrinsic values, qualities and quirks (local values), which
are at the same time of strategic importance for the prospects of Zürich's future (in Europe).
We call these memos.
The character of the Memos is therefore, that they expose six internationally promising -
respectively urgent - future key positions (for cities like Zürich) which are anchored in
Zürich’s specific strengths and characteristics.
With these six Memos, the city of Zürich is able to profile and position itself in the competition
between cities; with the Memos, Zürich’s current outstanding qualities can be strengthened and
developed into perspectives for its future. Thus they provide the framework for the qualitative and
sustainable (re)development of Zürich.
