CASABLANCA WATERFRONT REARRANGEMENT, URBAN DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE INVITED COMPETITION
It is designed that along the El Hank band east of the project area is a liquid, mobile, accessible and modern language, but using more urban character. The heavy residential and commercial fabric is located in the south of the area, which include the potential of the user along El Hank band of the cord, and it transports to coast these users with pedestrian and vehicle connections established through focal points. The designed strong pedestrian promenade along the road makes visual and physical entire the coastal band between El Hank and Hassan Mosque. This promenade, which is added by trams and motorways continuing from the south of the area but separated by a strong green area from the urban chaos, while El Hank gives it an emphaticise urban identity to El Hank band, El Hank brings his urban identity to the length of the cord, returns its face to the Atlantic. Our project, which takes the reference from the urban texture of Casablanca and presents the strong flow between the city and the coast as a precondition for sustainability, its mission that people of Casablanca reach to coast comfortable, safe and continuous. The areas that emerged as a result of our proposals for all over the coastline, they are modern, permeable and fluid spaces that return their face to the ocean without losing the human scale, as city and the Atlantic a operate a visually whole.
