LAYERS OF NATURE
This project investigates the experiences of an unused area and how the surface occupied by the railway can be transformed. The use can be enriched by preserving existing elements and adding a layer with activities in combination with the missing nature that once existed. Based on the properties of the site, analyses are made by mapping and layering information to find architectural design strategies. The result of the investigation is a proposal that preserves the current situation and at the same time breaks the barrier by the railway. Instead of being a gap the project creates a vibrant green urban hub.
