"The development of a city is a continuous process. Even in times of radical transformation, it is important to preserve the identity and find qualities of the site. Layered cities, with parts that are old, parts that are renewed and parts that are new, offer spatial diversity that attracts various users and encourages exchange and interaction. For us, this continuity is the key to inclusive transformation. Led by this principle, we approached the assignment looking for existing conditions that could become anchors for the new design."
