We are embracing Gdansk’s substantial maritime history by creating three distinct urban spaces to serve as anchors in the revitalization of the Imperial Shipyard: The Plaza, The Park, and The Dock. The Plaza is located by the famous Sala BHP-building to pay tribute to the signing of the Gdansk Agreement in 1980, a victory for the worker’s movement. Here you may find ice skating in the winter, and market days in the summer. The Park brings a lush, urban forest for people to enjoy the outdoors within the city. The Dock by the waterfront is the heart of Gdansk. It connects the shipyard to the city center and serves as a lively swimming pool with purified water.
Why wait until construction breaks to revitalize the area? A city is not a city until there is life. We plan to plant a sunflower field to revive the area before we finish building the new development. Sunflower fields will cleanse the polluted soil on site to prepare it for construction.
We will also ensure the water in the canals can be enjoyed by all on hot days by cleansing it through natural forms of filtration. By reviving the natural area before breaking construction, we hope to give the people of Gdansk a reason to visit the shipyard earlier to enjoy the beautiful sunflowers or take a dip in the canal.
