About The Project

The rail corridor is reimagined as a continuous flow of communal green spaces that integrates the contrasting programmes surrounding the rail corridor while increasing thermal comfort for its surrounding neighborhoods. New interventions are placed as horizontal expansions of the old tracks, expanding and contracting into interstitial spaces between segregated programs along the rail corridor. The urban greening along existing topography lines compliment newly planned buildings to intensify urban street canyons and cool low lying spaces along the rail corridor.
