Project Description

The form of the new square faced as a leaf, in which, if someone look at it carefully and under magnification, he will find a vein system, a structure system, an information flow system. Adopting a system of ribs and in combination with the side road traffic flow , resulting a creation of green areas with a dynamic organic form, which exude mobility rather than immobility to the visitor. The square will essentially be a "green filter" between the dense urban fabric of the city and the greenery, combining sunlight, air circulation and water. In the area of the child playground there are small rain water collectors shaped like up-down umbrellas to collect the rain water for irrigation needs. Furthermore, the whole square is designed such a way that even the circulation routes can collect the rainwater for the same purpose. The architectural team has been in contact with the neighborhood, residences and pedestrians of what they expect from the new development of the square , this methodology was a vital tool in defining the initial design parameters of our design approach.
