The problematic access points at the entrance of the church are removed to allow access for disabled people with using the same strategy in the Siena Piazza. Due to the different slopes of the terrain, the piazza is divided by 12 lines. The design of the streets where there is a public space reinforces pedestrian priority. It also encourages low speeds with different pavement considering the connecting between church, brewery and tobacco museum entrance. The main focus of the square in front of the church is to unify open space by bringing the parts together. This will be achieved using a large dominant elliptical shape covering the whole square. Strong and also simple geometric nature of an ellipse match perfectly for connection of the square. The main ellipsed pavement creates a quiet and spiritual area.
CHURCH SQUARE PUBLIC REALM
The parking spaces right next to the church have been removed to achieve a larger recreational area. In contrast the outer edge of the ellipse is a lively place with trees, water features, restaurants and cafes . Benches are carefully positioned according to this elements. Shop top offices and additional development to the brewery will assist in creating the proper enclosure of space for the square. The park reinforced by the development creates a strong foundation for establishing a recognisable image. The linearity of the development where the chateau is broken by the street wall englarges the space for relaxing and socialising.

For a certain time of the year, the area which is used for the funfair and activity was surrounded by asphalt roads and parking spaces and was lacking the proper outdoor amenities. The site was covered predominantly by grass.
the site was not actively utilized in the days when there is no festival. Because of the vehicle circulation and parking in the area, the siteâ€™s legibility was a question mark. For those reasons, grass cover is reduced and a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly circulation was implemented. The main function of the ground buildings is to provide a space where people can visit and hold workshops, tutorials or classes. The buildings also feature space for temporary accommodation. By reinvigorating parklands, integrating landscapes, and open space. It also incorporates water features and event spaces. It has created opportunities for events and activities as varied as open-air concerts and circus events. For this reason, a pavilion is designed to provide amenities.

The ground buildings of the Schwarzenberg Estate are designed creating a multi functioned space to better connect the city, festival area, and urban park to offer new places for people to gather, relax and play at any time of the year.

An abandoned industrial estate with warehouses and sheds is replaced by temporary or permanent programming. A popular phenomenon in the urban environment is the Culture Hall: a form between a market, supermarket, food stalls. Educated young people want to live in the city again. The roof shape welcomes people where the multifunctional market hall allows for a cultural programming of events, exhibitions and restaurants. The space on the square and adding a cultural program, the design introduces other elements to create a more attractive atmosphere. The factory is providing a large open space for any kind of cultural events and meetings having the connection with market and urban garden. It also allows various opportunities such as food factory or cultural center, making the building radically public in character, above all its spatial conception.

The urban agriculture project aims to create a platform where people can meet and interact around the garden which consists of a glass-covered greenhouse and a wider shaded open area and plantation areas. The collective garden aims to raise awareness of the initiative, in terms of attracting new users to the neighborhood. The urban garden is intended to serve the cultural center, restaurants, markets, and residences. In addition, the positioning of the urban garden provides a transition between the adjacent production area and the living area. The outdoor space invites the public to meet and eat in direct contact with its surrounding. The essence of this project is to involve the visitor in the landscape, nature and farming through shared moments. Besides, the agricultural garden would be enhanced by proposed features such as the collection of rainwater for use in the system, and the use of plant waste for energy production.

Hradcany Airport is a former military airport within the area of Ralsko in Liberec Region, nothern Czech Republic. Bullt toward the end of World War II for the Luftwaffe, it was expanded after the war. In 1968 the Soviet Army took control and set up a large air base here. However, after the Soviets left in 1991, the airport was abandoned and damaged. This area is protected since 1933 and declared as a nature reserve since 1967. More than 200 species of plants and more than 700 species of butterflies are listed in the area. Furthermore, few hiking trails and bike paths are passing through the nature reserve as well as some educative trails.

Shigeru Ban is a Japanese architect known for his innovative work with paper, particularly recycled cardboard tubes used for quickly building houses for disaster victims. Banâ€™s work with paper is heavily based on its sustainability and because it produces very little waste. Ban is attracted to using paper because it is low cost, recyclable, low-tech and replaceable. Temporary structure made from different sizes of paper cylinders. It offered a space for talks fort the university students in the university yard. The difference of this project from Banâ€™s paper house project is that fiberglass and epoxy (as a catalyst) were used for water resistance.
