Lagunen Paradise Revisited

The transformation of a suburban shopping area to an autonomous district center

Lagunen as a suburban center has reached the critical moment where it grows out of its own logic and needs an injection of urban programs to redefine its identity. Lack of investment in public infrastructure has resulted in big shopping malls with meaningless surroundings. To stimulate new urban life it is crucial to make the people visible again and establish sustainable visions for the future.

Paradise revisited introduces a new three-dimensional layer, re-interpreting the lost topography and creating groundwork for new life and vegetation. The terrain will cover several malls, link the area to the sea, establish good cross connections and allow new, multifunctional urban spaces to grow. Today’s horizontal organization is supplemented by a new vertical urban landscape, generating meeting places and movement patterns.
