Warsaw - second prize
The project has the larger scale ambition of reconnecting the district of Powisle to the Vistula river through Cubryna Gardens, intending them as a part of the already developed system of open public spaces in the region. The interaction between new and pre-existing elements is proposed as design methodology. The goal is to give new sense to the place by reinforcing the existing wooded threshold of the park. The proposal is not only seen as a new asset to the park, but also as a growing organism able to embrace different possible needs, while always preserving a clear architectural identity. It is conceived as an architectural rule capable of guiding present and future transformations of the park’s layout. At the same time, the project grants extreme flexibility to the system, as several different activities can fit the modular strips.
