Colada slum_frin[d]ge

The intervention area of our group is the coastal zone of the Colada slum, within the Back Bay Reclamation Gulf. The main characteristic of this zone is the disconnection between the slum and the sea, which is being prevented by an intermediate  mangrove belt. This has resulted to the ‘isolation’ of the slum inhabitants from the sea, which cannot even be seen from within the slum.

Our intention is to create ’bridges’ which connect the three layers [slum border_mangrove zone_sea] and this way give the slum the opportunity to take advantage of the sea and develop activities. The structure of the bridges will be adjusted to the tree different layers context [ground_mangrove sand_water].
