Vertical Street

Our purpose of this design is through the concept of vertical streets, to improve the utilization rate of land to facilitate residents life, to change the understand of the street, and to resurgent the old street once bustling but now declined. Matai street, the old street full of history, has a rich urban texture and historical background, and is the path connecting the north and south of the city since ancient times.  
The concept of vertical streets arises, creating "streets" in the air, on the ground, and underground; Integrating the function of the old streets and surrounding streets, and still meet the demand of the original streets; Contrary to the square, vertical streets is even better because it continued the spatial relations of original street and improve it with surrounding buildings so that walking route and spatial experience will be more unique.
