WENDUINE [empowering suburbia]

 

Completely detached from any form of self-living urban tissues, suburbia becomes an impossible place to live. Almost half of the space is used to provide room for cars. Garages, streets, parking lots at some point take over the place of pavement, playground or any other public space. Apart from that, Wenduine itself is a society of elderly people, who will not be able to take care of themselves in a few years. The area is too expensive to attract young people.

The aim of this design is to find a way to transform suburbs of Wenduine into a lively city structure, providing new places to live, work and relax in order to raise the standard of living.

PORT CZERNIAKOWSKI [living on water]

 

Small communities should grow according to their own rules, not shaped by main avenues of the cities or centre-creative spaces like shopping malls, but the relationships between people. From this starting point modular system was created. These modules can be connected depending on the needs of the inhabitants. The system, chaotic at first, shows regularity while growing.

Some platforms are green islands, others are playgrounds ensuring diversity of usage of the public space. The system gives users the ability to create urban structure, such as squares, avenues, streets within the marina. These “streets” have a human scale because the platforms are only pedestrian. Extensive communication is not needed, since it is already ensured by water.
