Status Competition Proposal
The proposed site is situated on reclaimed land, space symbolically significant as a zone of transition; a mythical in-between world. From this, our design investigates how landscape and urban form language can span the division between urbanity, culture and nature.
We explore the transition from density to openness and solidity to transparency by sheltering an urban forest and the museum within an urban grid. Allowing for views between and beyond, the museum facilitates opportunity to connect with nature within the urban and revitalises a lost dialogue between city, harbour and park.
