CONNECTING WATER LINE

As a part of our 2018 masters program, project we present the new and exciting strategy for urban development for the Romanian city, Giurgiu. Giurgiu is a city in southern Romania, It is situated on the left bank of the Danube facing the Bulgarian city of Ruse on the opposite bank. Three small islands face the city, and a larger one shelters its port, Smarda, making the core of our strategy. Our concept starts with fortifying the relations with the right bank of Bulgaria, both visible and as of terms of planning the city. In to do so we developed 3 areas with cultural activities commemorating the city and it's relations with the macro landscape. The 12 squarekilometer Island in the heart of Giurgiu inner harbor front, and also the home of the international naval port. Despite the prime location, the extension of the city is the last undeveloped quay along Giurgiu's inner waterfront. The proposal integrates a network structure of 'connectors' and 'collectors' to improve the waterfront's physical and social resilience. The recharged streets, creeks and enhanced ferry network are the 'connectors' that will become new slow and safe movement corridors to the points of collection, including adaptive open spaces that will socially recharge the area as a place for everyday gathering and civic celebration that can also provide the vital space needed for disaster assembly.

The proposal builds on the provisional urban life that is already on the island and proposes to replace the existing old warehouses with new and exciting public spaces , public functions such as an event hall, a gallery hall, and a cultural hub divided in 3 major places, a business center and two thematic parks. Also to increase the practicability and chaining the city with other competitive city on the Danube river commercial use will be placed in the middle of the area, which encircles a green and intimate spaces. The whole island will be flanked by a public promenade.
