Our project is conceived as a coherent masterplan and aims to seamlessly solve and integrate both functionally as well as physically the built and natural environment. The plan arrangement is inspired by the traditional medieval city fabric, which is formed of a system of squares and varying corridors which link these squares into a rich diverse social tissue. Programmatic needs are therefore catered for both individually and collectively, offering discrete identity through pockets, niches, squares, amphitheaters, natural steps, and increased connectivity via a meandering sloping network of ramps, steps, corridors, and bridges flying over and through the public spaces and connecting each private space providing a system of spatial orientation and organization.
