Park Plaza

In pressures of increased density, how can current car parks be re-appropriated to coexist as vital public spaces? Acknowledging that the need for car parks isn’t going away in the near future,the project investigates a form of positive coexistence between people and cars in order to creating a new public space. To create this new hybrid, 5 key strategies have been explored:

- Improving site linkage

- Reclamation of on street car parking at key entrance points

- Expansion of edge activities and programs

- Insertion of pockets of new programs

- Improving the threshold to underground car park

Through smaller strategic movements rather than a complete renewal, the car park is permanently transformed into a new public space for the people.
