Its design is conceptualized as water dropping down the big stairs creating a pool in the plaza.
Conceptually the water drops solidify becoming seating features with triangular shading structures, transforming the stairs into a tribune toward the main plaza where the crystal pool is located.

At the main plaza, the pool is intercepted by an obstacle course creating many sub areas and activities for the public space.

The interception of those elements results into an interesting urban landscape and a colorful circuit of events that provide entertainment for parents and kids as well as sitting and lighting features for youngsters and families to enjoy in the public space.

Grounded Object

Product definition

It is an inhabitable architectural object inserted on top of an existing urban environment, but alienated from its surroundings.
 
This architectural object intervenes in the space by touching the ground and acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, allowing people to stand on top of it and interact directly.
 
The main objective of this conceptual prototype is to trigger a massive public interest to the place, encouraging the rise of high public affluence, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
