CITY HORISON

2nd Place in International architectural competition “Urban and architectural design of waterfront Tivat “Pine”, area 9900m2, Municipality of the City of Tivat, Montenegro.

The urban design problem concerning the urbanization of a former militarized zone and it’s transformation into a international touristic destination came to surface through the urban regeneration of the pier of Tivat. Through the analysis of the architectural question it became apparent that the real issue revolves around the problematic relationship between the wharf and the surrounding area as well as the urban role which is able to play. In this sense the pier can be seen as an urban core that manages the flows of the city. In order to operate in this manner, the pier should be linked in a bigger degree to the city center and also have direct communication with the north and south side of the town. For this to happen the pier itself must to be completed to a certain point of it’s surface. Covering the existing gap of the pier, the city’s front facing the street  becomes a bigger, including the former military zone. This way the whole pier is transformed into a square, ready to be connected to the rest of the city through the management of materials.
