eSCAPE, prague meets waterfront

eSCAPE is an emergent landscape which emerges from the Vltava river and creates a strong unity of living urban eco-systems and built urban environment around the site. Project eSCAPE comes with many
ideas how to deal with the current problems of the site. The most fundamental one is restoring the river flow and dividing the land into the islands which was inspired by historical conditions of the river. The islands morphology is designed
with the awareness of floods, main islands are accessible even during them. Small islands are used as wetlands so they help to clean the river and accumulate the water during the floods. eSCAPE is a system of active and passive
parklands. The two biggest islands are used as a main recreational areas on the site, smaller islands have only a limited access and use. The two green northern islands are unaccessible for human and create a zone for a wildlife. A new
structure of the Libensky bridge breaks the physical and social barriers on the site and provides accessibility to the main islands which are also connected to the surroundings by the system of ferry lines and non-vehicular bridges. The new
development in surroundings extends the existing urban fabric to the newly created waterfront but watefront is still a public space. The idea of garden colony is preserved but the design has changed to help the colony interact with outside
world and to help protect this area against the floods.
