Separating active and passive uses. Sheltered rest areas

Photo: Iwan Baan

The enriching co-existence of uses and users forms an essential part of the ideas behind programming the public spaces yet it can also generate conflictive situations. It is thus necessary to conciliate the different rhythms, setting aside specific differentiated spaces, away from busier or faster moving areas, for more relaxing, contemplative or slow moving uses.

Stage 2 (like the first) comprises a series of unique rest areas which mark out the pedestrian route: stepped seating; an observation deck overlooking the street; a long drawn out bench along the curved part of the viaduct; and a perforation made in the structure in order to make its functioning understood.
