Reinventing the Riverbank is the embodiment of organic development. The plan is based on a porous system of circles that answers the assignment on all scale levels. A pattern of circles is placed over the entire project site. On the waterfront the circles determine the pubic space and the buildings. Because of the circular pattern the design can be extended in all directions. According to the designers, the structure proposed allows for a flexible layout. The construction volumes can be filled in with offices, apartments, single-family housing, shops and public pergolas. The buildings can be stacked, but single-level volumes are also an option.
