The aim of the design of ‘Flow’ is to connect the area with various flows and use those flows to create a muti-fuctional place. Cars and pedestrians can enter the space from various directions. The car park will have direct access to the building.

There are a number of vantage points into the site. People can enjoy different views when they walk in the area. The flowing surface provides many functions for people from different ages. There is space for teenagers to skateboard and areas for the elderly to site and rest.

Water collection is another use of the surface. With the slope of the surface, wa­ter will be lead to a few man-made water feds. If it doesn’t rain, the fed can be also used for roller skating.
