Centrale Allee

A public connection between an industrial site and a natural reserve emphasizes many of the pressing questions we face today. The design juxtaposes ongoing industrial processes (material depots, energy production, logistical flows) and ecological processes (succesion, growing biodiversity, hydrology, seasons) that are flourishing in reclaimed parts of the brownfield. The design consist of linear bands that intentionally puts these two traditionally antagonistic land uses in close proximity to represent a movement towards a closer union between man and nature. <br>After the park opens to the public, a visitors will never visit the same park, as it the bands keep changing according to the rhythms of both ecology and industry.
