The Olympic and post-Olympic Village deserves intensity and visibility. This is proposed by dividing the given plot into two radical, synergetic elements: one empty, one full. An urban public space at the river faces a dense urban neighborhood: the Village on the Beach. The Village condenses all the program into a portion of the site to stimulate a NYC-style urbanity that would otherwise be diluted on the entire site.
By differentiating the towers in program and appearance, a collection is created that stimulates a sense of individuality and belonging. The ground level of towers contain public functions, lobbies and parking entrances. The higher floors house the apartments with varying floor plate sizes and incorporate private and public gardens.
