Urban Icons proposes a completely new urban plan. All the industrial development is demolished to make room for an urban grid of streets, row development, water and green spaces. A number of solitary buildings are situated within the framework of a rectangular watercourse at right angles to the canal. Two are further elaborated: a cube-shaped apartment building in the harbour basin and a row of waterfront housing parallel to the canal. As regards architectural expression, the one is a rigid block, the other a whimsical and colourful construction volume, the two buildings differ markedly in character.
