Modern Urban Landscape for The Middle East
Klingmann Architects and Brand Consultant’s recent work in the Middle East illustrates solutions for New York City’s densely packed urban landscape.
There are six functions within the master plan. The exchange district incorporates office buildings and public transportation. With a leisure district that includes a plaza, themed gardens, restaurants and retail, and water feature.
Within the artistic loft district, there are live/work lofts, art galleries, specialty shops, outdoor cafes, a sculpture garden, and a performance area. For the high-end population, there’s park view living, with townhouses and a promenade.
The living district creates a balance, including a community square, kindergarten, religious facilities, retail shops, and a sports center.
Lastly, there’s the thematic parkscape with a grand waterfall, terraced eco gardens, festival area, summer stage, and pavilions for exhibitions.
While the entire scope of this project may be too large for New York City, the idea of distinct districts can certainly be utilized as the city plans for a more holistic future. This is especially true, as new buildings are constructed and existing land is repurposed.
