ASSEnBLY means the realization of your new needs. It creates a new ecosystem in which dimensions have a human scale in a district that reduces distances offering you not just the purchase of new house, but the achievement of a new way of life. Living in ASSEnBLY will mean starting to use what you simply admired before. Here natural and artificial assemble together, because natural elements are mixed into the living fabric of the town.
ASSEnBLY puts your individual needs and your social dimensions together so as to reduce the urban scale and create a community. This is ASSEnBLY.
DEVELOPMENT.


ASSEnBLY is a multiple choice, a collection of many possibilities, the opportunity of changing over time.
It represents the end of traditional urban planning: outdoor and indoor spaces can have a wide variety without having to struggle with an over-regulated urban planning burocracy. It can be the new way of transforming the city, abiding by the quality of development.
CAN ASSEnBLY GROW OUT OF THE SITE?
ASSEnBLY is the answer to business uncertainties and to the increasing need of space flexibility: thanks to a “functional floating plate” Havenkwartier’s surface will be under a gradual layering, with the intent to double the public space. This place is also used for the public green and for private and semi-private gardens. The urban and floating Landmark ensures streams of bicycles, boats, car and people without their colliding.
Private homes and professional/management activities can finally hybridize among them maintaining an easy access to the public and semi-public spaces.
The green floating plate could also be the the instrument to transform all of those nearby structures that are next to closure.
“ASSEnBLY” IS A PROTOTYPE
“ASSEnBLY” is a customizable, adaptable, exportable, repeatable, contextualizable model.
For example, the Havenkwartier (the area around the harbor) model is placed between the mainland and the water, accessible from both land or water.
You can arrive at “ASSEnBLY” by boat, car, bike, bus or by foot.
