URBAN VOIDS, URBAN LAYERS
For this urban project, I was very interested in the exploration of urban voids and historical layers. I tried to experiment on what could become Gullbergsvass taking into account climate, mobility, history as well as newer aspects regard ecology.
I took inspiration from historic examples, literature and elements on the edge of architecture. In the end it allowed me to create a project combining my specific heritage coming from Paris with a broader view of urbanism learned with our international teachers.
Gullbergsvass neighbourhood is surprising for its vacuity despite clues of its past. I've tried to challenge the tabula rasa proposed by the municipality by occupying the warehouse in the middle of the site. I was very impressed by its sheer scale and potential as an urban indoor plaza.
