Concepts will be explored by identifying key challenges and then demonstrating the concept of the overall story.
The core problem of all four challenges is that the urban edge shows incoherent, static and negative city images. To tangle this problem, here is my first concept:
Concept 1: Elastic urban edge
The most important goal is to create a symbiotic, elastic urban edge, which can merge the natural scenery with urban life coherently. Plus, it can encourage essential events to happen at the meeting nodes or urban structure and the river front.
The approach that I have to activate this urban edge is to linking events with its surroundings.
Through the following analysis, the whole story of the riverfront storyline will be split into three consecutive story sections. They are culture, entertainment and oasis stories.
The new developments could generate elastic and rational interactions with three main story sections and bring together new qualities . Over time, the vitality along the river will further permeate into the city, which will eventually open to and establish a connection with the rest of the city.
