Andreas Haeni & Kevin Olas_first review

As of right now the river is perceived as dangerous and a place where the poorest of the poor live. This notion of the river has to be fundamentally changed in order to revitalize it and its bounding areas. This re-thinking is achieved by up- grading the river front buildings in an all new building structure. Through this measure people will learn again to appreciate the river and its river banks. In order to respond to the requirements for each block, we have to divide them into smaller subblocks. Each subblock organizes the garbage collection and the drinking water availability for its own use whereas the rainwater is collected in each unit and used for domestic use only (graywater). Every subblock with a boundary along the river edge is responsible to clean this graywater and then drain it into the river.
