Description

The approach accentuates staging, and the addition of layers. The first stage focuses on parking, a “swop” is proposed, where centralised parking facilities are constructed. The second stage is then the transformation of the redundant parking into public, green space, developed as a patchwork as each landowner sees fit. The added layers are infrastructural: the addition of a slow traffic ring and the green axis encourage pedestrian flow through the area. A modest approach to building refurbishment is proposed, primarily to open up ground floors for public use.

Jury assessment

This well-presented design proposes a number of well-organised interventions. It complies with the assignment, but then adds little to it.
