Beyond Boundaries: Exploring the Dynamic Relationship between Infrastructure, Landscape, and Movement


Profile picture of Nour Lebbakh

The design research project looks at the relationship between infrastructure, landscape, and movement, with a particular focus on the transformation of the waterfront. The project aims to revitalize the underutilized, isolated waterfront area and reimagine its connection with the city by exploring alternative transportation modes. It aligns with other post-industrial cities that are reconnecting with their waterfronts after the decline of old industries.

The project proposes the design of a parametric, constructed landscape on the waterfront to address the connectivity problem and create a more fluid connection between the city's infrastructure and movement. The algorithm used to design the landscape and roof will result in a visually stunning environment that enhances the experience of arriving in the city. Mixed-use facilities like ticket halls, transfer halls, waiting areas, event spaces, and a restaurant quarter will be included in the constructed landscape to revitalize the city.
