Watersquare

06/07

watersquare-03

The project proposes a great number of typical and extraordinary water related activities along a dense network of public spaces around the water square, turning this into an active archipelago of potential identities.

By proposing a complete collection of amenities (transport, car access, bridges, bicycle paths, skeeler tracks, parking, boating bays, park, beach) the potential is revealed and maximized. The fragmentary moments of building feeding these public spaces on all sides frame, exploit, give form and further accentuate the grand dimension of the area.
