    This is a masterplan project for the port city of Rijeka in Croatia. The masterplan aims to establish a new type of connection and urban condition, allowing “green belts and blue waves” to interfere with each other and to join together. The project proposes a global zoning divided into Delta north, Delta south and Porto Baroš. At the same time the masterplan aims to establish continuous flow, vibrant connection and even space narrative among different parts. The spine of the project is the Delta promenade.This is an 800 meters long walk, strategically positioned at the junction of the three parts of the area, collecting all positive influences from them as well as from the old city and the Sušak hill. In the north part it merges with the proposed park. The promenade takes the form of a large pier in the south side, with public buildings in the center of the pier. The programme includes the new aquarium, and the congress center linked to a new stunning five star hotel at the end. The first two are partially underground buildings, while the above the ground part takes the form of an undulated landscape with tilted sloped roofs, accessible to the people along the north-south axis. The development ends with the “O”, an icon landmark, an "eye" placed directly into the water, allowing the public path of the promenade to penetrate through it and physically reach the out most point of the promenade self, with fantastic views over the open sea. Bearing in mind the unique climatic conditions and incredible sail opportunities, the master plan introduces on Delta South a marina as part of the new urban development. In order to avoid the well know segregating feeling of many such recreational areas, this development takes the form of large piers, on which public, residential and commercial development will take place. The boat places are therefore available for passionate of sailing as well as for new Delta residents, promoting a unique and undoubtedly charming new style of urban life.
