This competition proposal reimagines the relationship between local landscape and commercial development in our cities; integrating architecture, technology and ecology to create a future urban city realm.
The project is based on a waterfront area in a primarily commercial district. The dialogue between the site’s two distinct sides, existing development and parkland, formed the design’s basis. Blurring the boundaries between these land uses underpins the mixed-use scheme which unites public realm, cultural, retail, commercial and transport functions.
