The Gardiner Proposal

Existing Proposed

Existing buildings can be maintained within the fabric of berms and sloping planes. In fact, existing conditions would work to give a sense of variety and complexity to the workings of the immediate area or context. The multiple uses of parkspace, rooftop garden, storefronts and other pedestrian activities will serve to generate public activity in the area.
