An urban scale project should be alive from its first stage. It gradually gains credit, absorb funds, and accept changes through social, political and economic fluctuations of the city and slowly expand its tentacles into urban tissue physically and programmatically. Events develop from local incidents to more urban, more effective phenomena. In this process the site absorbs more energy from visitors and become more interesting for private sector.
RIGID VS HYBRID
The hybrid structure acts like a deck for the 3 icons . The upper level is an urban streetscape with a car access to the elements. It contains various outdoor activities as well as few parking lots. The super structure is a container of flexible combinations of different programs which promotes the users’ freedom of action within space. By integrating disparate programs instead of separating them we have designed a living mega-structure . A hybrid space fully interacted with the garden which contains unpredictable sequences of spatial experience . This super structure is a container of flexible combinations of different programs which promotes the users’ freedom of action within the space.
