STRASBOURG INITIATIVE: EUROPEAN STRATEGIC PLANNING AGENCY - EUROPEAN DISTRICT OF STRASBOURG, FRANCE
This project is entitled “Ligne D’Horizon”(French), meaning skyline in English, analyses the skyline of Strasbourg and aims to integrate the Think-Tank structure with the existing city silhouette. The city of Strasbourg has a very dense layout of small-town villages that are hidden in the massive volume of greeneries. However, the city also has some significant structures near the project site such as European Union buildings, Russian Orthodox Church, and Strasbourg Port revealed on the horizon. The dynamism between the horizontal high populated greeneries and the vertical significant structures creates the unique skyline of Strasbourg. The design of a “Think-Tank” structure is to be one of the significant structures and be a part of this skyline.
