The project is designed as a “street” that negotiates the slopes of the site, allowing people to promenade,enjoy amazing views and pop-in and out of program. Sacred, cultural, commercial and leisure program plug into the “street”.  The street is activated and the plug-in program extends to it allowing social activities to spill into communal areas, creating an active landscape.
