Floating Platforms

Through walking in the city and talking to people, I identified the river as the most powerful potential of the site. To make people notice the river and enjoy it, I designed a simple landscape with sitting areas, picnic spaces, or spaces for just watching the river. As the difference between high and low tide is six meters in height, I designed a floating platform that could move up and down. The platform is supported by a truss, allowing it to slide up and down. A space frame lattice with tanks lets the platform float on the water, which hosts different activities according to the seasons. resized1.jpg sketch.jpg Game01.jpg Game03.jpg (4).jpg
