Project Summary

Design for a Clan Settlement's Regeneration

The project provides a model for the adaptation and revitalization of an existing urban sector without large scale demolition or replacement.

The goal of this design is to create new type of water front space for the locals, which contains both historical information and vernacular landscapes. By considering the direction, location and density of the roads, ponds and rivers, the topography of the site is maintained.
