Manifesto:
REFLECTS. THICKENED WATERFRONT
AA SCHOOL
LANDSCAPE URBANISM

Spatial and three-dimensional experience:
The arrival sequence into Reflects, Thickened Waterfront needs to be set in context with the rest of the proposal, managing to augment the sensations of the pedestrians or focalize the attention into strategically treated microenvironments.

The work is based on an expanded idea of the edge, turning into a field of distributed spatial experience what otherwise is defined as a line or a rigid boundary of the water edge. The main idea would be to blur the contact of land-water seeking to encroach earth structures into the lagoon while bringing it inland in other areas.

    I would like to know where your water will come from that will feed these landscape environments. There may be many potential sources in a project such as this. What are they? Once you know where the water will come from what will be the objectives of using this water and what is the net result? How will this, in your concept, benefit the project, the client and the experience of the visitors?
