Evaluation

This project presents one solution to the increasingly important theme of how to realize co-existence of different generations in an urban setting. The rich outdoor space offers a place to hang out and play, all the while providing a shortcut or a shared path as well as a community space that fosters interaction making eye contact. Including a brick wall that brings a good balance of comfort and privacy, it realizes a variety of smart features despite the cost restrictions, demonstrating a great future model of multi-purpose space in the city.
