“each layer could be for residential, commercial uses or as green strips for relaxation. each layer is only 4m deep, such that one passes quickly walking from one layer to the next. from small eateries to cozy shops to intimate green lanes to residences, in a short time, one passes through a succession of differences, a bodily traversing of concrete urban richness.” – kuu architects
