Archipelago21

The site is broken into “islands” — distinct forms that together, like an archipelago, create a composition in the landscape. Outside the islands, the site is developed into a generous natural landscape which acts as the “sea” connecting the islands together. The islands become distinct neighborhoods with their own unique program area, character, community and atmosphere. Although they are distinct and human scaled, together the islands create a diverse and vibrant city life. These island neighborhoods break down the overall density and mass of the large urban development.
