We is a community project, when we first started looking at the program we had this image. The image of a social project that maximize the interaction and sharing principles at various living and activities levels where each space can be shared and has a higher sense of belonging from the inhabitants, users and citizens. From the ground which is the first common platform for all possible outdoor activities and interaction to the urban structure where the green infrastructure over taking the place and arrives to the lake. The new dialogue is the dynamic feature of water when it rises and enters the landscape filling up pools day and night, summer and winter within a leisure featured by outdoor activating elements that brings different interests on the same ground while all the indoor public facilities shares the same ground with located in protected pools.
The form followed the feeling and been adjusted by the context. In, out and with where the most used while discussing how can we develop the idea – one community, one unique form, one courtyard on one common ground – a defined form with maximum possibilities of adjustments where each space inside can start from being shared by everyone to a private space. we proposed the possibility of densification and grows within a defined limits.
We is a shared time and place. That’s why we call it We.
