Design of a water park along the Linth canal, from lake Wallen to the lake of Zurich.
FROM ANALYSIS TO DESIGN
“Through the looking glass”
Considering the small height differences in the valley, the new park-design follows the micro-topographical traces of the old river along the canal. At the same time, the designing phase of the proposal is based on our attempts to solve the flooding problem of the nothern part of the valley and to connect the two opposite sides of the canal.
Grayscale represents difference in height leve. From the darkest areas which are the lowest and consequently the most wet, to the brightest whivh are also the highest points in the topography
Traces of the old river along the canal. From saga map using GIS data to a milled model generated through grasshopper in Rhino.
Through solving the infrastructural problem of the water network, we design public space for the residents but we also attempt to establish the new water park as a pole of attraction and future developement.
