The New

The public-commercial integration transformed and redefined the site from simply an open space into an animated public place supported by commercial amenities.

With a responsive yet transcendent design that takes inspiration from the visible and invisible dualities of its context addressing the complexities and contradictions in urban revitalization, this small regeneration project in a sensitive context attests to the possibility and value of hybrid placemaking crossing physical and conceptual boundaries between commercial and public realms, ground and underground spaces, and institutional and commercial mentalities, integrates buildings with landscapes, and combines timeless aesthetics with transforming cultures and authentic places with poetic narratives.
