SMALL CANAL is bringing back the opportunity of nature - WATER in a touchable HUMAN SCALE to the city Tongzhou that will grow in the coming years. A healthy city is an fabric out of natural and architectural elements that are acting together in a good proportion and are forming the urban.
The SMALL CANAL gives the quality of new public spaces which are to be manifested in different architectures along
its flow. The both riverbanks are not the same on each side. While the harsh edge gives a clearer border between urban area and nature, it can provide a faster run along the canal. In the mean time the soft edge blurres and extends the nature, forming a wetland or bigger green areas.
PAVILION - one of five proposals near the SMALL CANAL. Going further to the south of there is following a PUBLIC SPACE on a platform long the canal. In the morning it offers space for market sellers and in the evening it operates as a streetfood market. Water can be experienced through different levels and feelings.
