Entry Description

Our aim toward this urban project was to transform the city into a city of landmark, tourism, and service. We tempted to make the site achieve globalization strategies by redefining global hierarchy of the city. The goals of developing a new urban area were not only to create a healthy community for St. Marys' citizen but also to attract more tourists come to St. Marys. The site represented the city’s landscape and experience in the micro scale. To be more poetic, and symbolic, we brought the water element into the site under the shape of the river as seen in St. Marys’ landscape. Therefore, the river becomes the main element that connect the different parts of the site all together but also help to increase the value of the land where everyone can share the same experience.
