Redevelopment of a centrally located site in Göteborg. The commission was to develop the future empty site remaining from the planned demolishing of the old bridge Göta älvbron.
The Proposal aims to link the fragmented urban fabric that is the present state of the site. A new green urban axis connects the waterfront with the city center and existing green urban areas. This new walk and bicycle path aims to secure green public space in a future densification of the central site.
The proposed structure departs from it urban context of existing sightlines and scales. The buildings varies in volume and material, relating both to existing high-rise building and the harbour landscape as to the human scale introduced with the new and improved walk and bicycle paths. A variation of program are proposed. From office, housing, commercial and service to recreation spots and public space.
A developed waterfront is proposed to make the water more accessible. The renewal of existing parking land, adding green parkings and public space, together with the new marinas and terraced wharfs invites citizens to the river.
