Description

Text by Matthew Turner: The structuring principle is the introduction of a green lung, running alongside the railway tracks, and an urban lung on the other side of the site. Over the long term, the area of hard surfacing on the site is greatly reduced by the introduction of trees and green, especially along the boulevards. Car parking is greatly reduced. Buildings with different functions (supermarket, hotel, library etc.) are introduced between the existing buildings, densifying the site. A series of bridge buildings across the site allow for views, and temporary, mixed uses.
