Framework Plan for Historic Eastern Harbor
Citation of Merit
With an emphasis on connectivity, the architects proposed a master plan that unites inhabitants and visitors with the city's ancient history and sites. The plan calls for centralized parking, new pedestrian pathways, improved public transportation, and a new museum district. A new breakwater protects and extends access to existing archeological sites. Jurors admired the corniche and "the idea of public space and connecting the city." One juror praised the plan's "formal geometry on something organic," while another juror concurred: "I like the sophisticated treatment of the [city's] edge."
