Linear Park

The ETH Zurich and the IDB launched a pioneering collaboration in 2012, with the goal to provide applied research and integrated design solutions for Port of Spain, Trinidad. The Brillembourg & Klumpner Chair critically assessed river regeneration, cultural heritage restoration, and urban renovation within the framework of two consecutive design studios from August 2012 to June 2013. A series of strategies has been developed that transform the East Dry River into a linear park by combining necessary infrastructure with missing social programs and public space. Michael Contento
