dc.description.abstractThrough the study of linear waterfronts, it brought about the interest in the potential of the forgotten spaces. The change in the mindset towards the water bodies that slice through the city The thesis aims to reactivate the waterfront, tapping of its linearity, which allows it to pierce through the community, percolating through the surrounding spaces. Pockets of inactivity have spawned over time, with these spaces along the waterfront being neglected and its potential largely untapped. The overcoming of the aversion to the water’s edge adds another dimension into the urban experience and this is being tackled in the thesis through architecture. My site choice for the project brings me to the banks of Rochor Canal. The area is largely forgotten with empty plots of land flanking the banks. The site is sandwiched between districts of high activity, and the lull disrupts the flow of urban movement. My project sets out to inject a catalyst in order to bring in the much-needed life along the utilitarian Rochor Canal. It is aimed to rethink of the functionality of the canals in the urban context and reintegrating it into the landscape, working together with the architecture to create an all rounded place for public use. The insertion of a public space into the cityʼs urban fabric plays up the qualities of the canal. The reactivation is proposed through the redesigning of the public plain for flea market activity to manifest, marrying the utopian idea of the coexistence between formal and informal trading(shopping) and coupled with the idea of living in the midst of all the commercial activity.
