Urban Platform. Digital Work and Placemaking for Piarcoplein
This project creates a very interesting connection between the station and its surrounding by linking the different squares. The design brings together the different movements and flows in the area. By introducing a new mid-level movement system, the project creates a landscape underneath the elevated train tracks of folded footpaths and pavilions with urban program and places to stay. Using the different movements and flux as well as integrating ‘the bypass’ and the parking makes this a proposal worth looking at it seriously. The idea of respecting the existing structure and building underneath the tracks is strong but these new landscapes generate much more space that would need to be animated and programmed.
