The project introduces a mix between an ecological and a heritage approach, in which the global vision is not very clearly articulated! What is the relationship between heritage and ecology? The project restricts the brief too much to a question of merely local qualities, showing a lack of coherence between the sites, ignoring the competition brief. The brief demands to link the sites with a masterplan, but the project relies rather on the implementation of high-quality individual architectures, which makes the urban strategy very vulnerable.
Project site nr 1 is the most appropriate response to the context, the other interventions are not so convincing. The structure of project site nr 1 is attractive but will never be realised. Especially the response on project site nr 3 (complementing the engine shed) is not convincing.
