Sofia Karo Multifunctional Masterplan
The vision for this multi-functional peripheral centre is to condense the building mass and compact it in a square frame in the central area of the site.
The Masterplan is treated simultaneously as one building and as a constellation of buildings. The compaction of the building mass allows to deliver an urban density found in much larger metropolitan centres, with much the same character of buildings.
The issue here is to generate a strong coherent identity and outward image for the multifunctional center, while at the same time instigate the generative principles that would facilitate the process of development in inviting stakeholders to engage in public private partnerships.
