The EDGE of the Covid era

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, it has negatively impacted the world. With lockdown and restrictions, it caused a great impact on our mental health and well-being. This raised the importance and awareness on the importance in creating therapeutic landscape that have a healing power to curl us. In this project, it is to test out how the Bays waterfront can be a therapeutic space in all times for near and far. Apart from focus on human users experience and feeling, natural elements of the site are not neglected. There are several stages that the project. In stage 1, it is focusing on reviving the site through Phytoremediation by natural power of vegetation. Since the soil in the site is heavily contaminated due to past industrial background, a wise selection of vegetation is to clean the soil, thus improve the water quality. In stage 2, it is focusing reconnection with the new metro station. The Bays was once an isolated and restricted area from public access. The metro station will bring new flow of people and allows people to enjoy the spectacular view of the Sydney Harbour and significant landmarks on the site. In stage 3, it is focusing on reactivate the site. The northern side of water promenade would provide ranges of sport activities to promote physical exercising to maintain a healthy lifestyle to the local communities. In Stage 4, it is focusing on reactivate the Glebe Island as a working industrial harbour with new arts and photography exhibitions.
