SEAFRONT | Ostend, Belgium | International Competition
The waterseen as a body enjoyment has historically been one of the identity signsof Oostende and is still present in the collective imagery, like in vintage postcards and other souvenirs. We propose to consolidate this image by expanding the water enjoyment towards a sensory and visual experience: a new urban event that adds a “physical” layer of history to Oostende’s seafront.
The new walkway, as it is placed more than hundred meters from the existing one, constructs an impossible image until nowand at the same time typical of tourist postcards: that of Oostende’s waterfront. The city that has been historically looking at the infinite sea now contemplates itself; but now its image is filtered and blurred through several layers of water in different states, with different shapes, colors … Water again becomes an interface between the old city that overlooked the sea and the new city that faces itself.
