This is not one specific example but rather a strategy for urban design. Implemented by Theodor Fischer in Munich at the end of the 19th century, a time where straight axes and rectangular grids were popular in the development of new and old quarters, it is derived from a manifesto by Camillo Sitte, City Planning According to Artistic Principles (1889). The idea is to create a street network that is and seems to be more natural, like in a grown medieval town, where the view is always enclosed by buildings.
