Water Re-use and Visibility in the new city of Belval

WLA18_BelvalNord10-ELYPS

In the south of Luxembourg an industrial area, in earlier days used by the steel industry, was transformed into an attractive working and living environment. The project is near to the French border in the new city of Belval. 

On the south slope of the site, with a view on the French hills there will be a residential area with 500 houses called Belval Nord. The town planning concept follows the landscape and the building blocks are carefully fitted in, here the landscape creates the urban design.

Ocean Hyacinth | Jihyoon Yoon, Daekwon Park

WLA18-ocean-hyacinth-jihyoon-yoon-04

Proposal
Ocean Hyacinth is a network of floating tidal marshes that will purify the contamination caused by the ship breaking process. During the continuous tidal water exchange on the Ocean Hyacinth, the combination of various soils, plants, animals, and bacterial will not only filter and break down the contaminants from the sea but also form a tidal marsh ecosystem as a floating island. In addition to revitalizing Alang’s natural costal ecosystem, we also propose the Ocean Hyacinth to become a platform for aquaculture facilities, tidal power generators, and lighthouses. The surface provides people a coastal park with beach space. The light power for navigating ships at night and general utility power for the island are generated by tidal energy.
