    this is a strategy to generate one coherent piece of landscape. in between the strong urban shape the new landscape acts like a fluid. dispersion and compression as the main components of our design defines the level of greenery and pavement. Considering the main access lines the clumps of pixels create the pictographic structure of the new landscape.

    The next step will be de definition of various characters and atmospheres depending on the local situation of the surrounding area.

    Beurteilung durch das Preisgericht

    The scheme has been thoroughly worked through. It provides extremely flexible flat sizes on aflexible grid. The layouts of both offices and housing are adaptable and offer good designsolutions. Possible monotony and monumentality of the design were controversially discussedamongst the Jury members. The potentially monumental character of the elevations is alleviatedby the sculptured appearance.The landscape pattern representing a transitional zone between the river landscape and theurban area to the south is expressed in alternating intensities of hard and soft surface treatment.Although the proposal shows an interesting approach, it is doubtful whether the intended fluiditywould transpose to detail level.
