The prize-winning plan for developing the port of Kaohsiung is built around the city’s DNA. The city’s avenues and the mountain park are extended onto the quays and piers. Meanwhile the development of specific high and low density typologies creates two distinct urban environments. The waterfront location houses a conventional port and also has plenty of room for the city to introduce large-scale water activities. Finally, the construction of two new bridges creates a natural heart for the Love Bay and all related activities and facilities.   location: Kaohsiung Taiwan design period: 2006 - 2010 implementation: 2025 - area: 970.000 m2 program: 3.271.000m2 BVO mixed used: companies, housing, free time, shops designed by: Juurlink[+]Geluk (Huub Juurlink, Cor Geluk, Joost de Wit, Marcel van der Meijs) in cooperation with: Studio Sputnik (Jaakko van ’t Spijker, Bert Karel Deuten, Henk Bultstra), EDS Environmental Design Solutions, Taipei; MRT-engineering, Kaohsiung; Shin Traffic consultants, Kaohsiung commissioned by: City Kaohsiung, Taiwan
