HOUSING. FROM CITY TO THE NEWWATERGARDEN

NIEU WAter gaRDEN, a new image of preexisting significant result, tradition and memory.
The aim of the competition site has some traits that enhance the proposal.
We understand the idea of place in a comprehensive manner. We discuss this concept of three complementary ways:
1_The place as a location and physical space
2_The place as a result of a technological tradition, constructive and typological
3_The place as a space for collective memory, where the city’s past emerges to support the present.

 

LIVING IN A WATERGARDEN

The identity associated with the urban is going to be established through the pre-existing, the tradition and the memory, arguments can reveal the character of a particular landscape. It is to rescue, turning a peripheral and suburban space in a new location capable to foster its own identity. From the local heritage we can build a contemporary image of European urbanity.
