The Vertical Open City
The project is a network of highly compacted vertical public and domestic spaces stacked on top of each other, highlighting the relationship between the overlapping functions while forming three-dimensional open spaces on different levels that serve the broadest demographic of the city. The structures are focused on the civic role of dwelling and cultivating the public qualities of 24/7 city life. The qualities of the underground and the tube stations as places with crowded richness and mix of social strata, is intended to flow vertically and continue as a vertical street-scape. The public spaces such as the piazza, open-air performance space and the roof garden are formed as the expansion of the city into the building.
