Architecture Competition: Canopy – A waterfront pavilion to bring people together
Waterfront developments are the heart and soul of coastal places, grounds for public interaction. But their precarious location calls for disaster-resistant structures. We need to find out ways to keep the design of waterfront construction relevant in these circumstances.
Brief: The design challenge is to create a resilient urban centre in a coastal region. The pavilion designed must be capable of withstanding harsh conditions in the event of a disaster.
The pavilion must consist of a marketplace, food courts, green spaces, and so on, all under one roof. Multi-functional spaces will attract a variety of users to the centre, enabling social gatherings.
The aim of the design is to explore a new way of incorporating disaster-proof designing into city planning. The way the construction will behave in the event of a calamity must be anticipated. The design must be a transient and resilient, quality parcel of the public domain.
