Many cities have at least one major problem area that probably requires some dissection and restructuring of its circulation scheme. This concept for a new Slavija Square aims to bring order to the chaos of one Serbian urban intersection.
Adam Vukmanov took up the challenge to isolate different transportation systems in this hectic zone and to devise a layering strategy that would keep pedestrians, cars, buses and trams moving separately. Ground level would be designated for public transit, underground for automobiles and a level on top would become a safe place for people to get around on foot with just the sky above them. To accommodate existing infrastructure, the new Slavija Square gets broader as it rises, even coming to integrate shops and restaurants for the crowds.
The New Slavija Square Better Organizes the Entanglement of Traffic
1. Multi-level Circulation - Opportunities for multi-level circulation schemes in urban intersections
2. Separate Zones for Transit - Emerging trend of separating transportation systems in metropolitan areas
3. Mixed-use Infrastructure - Trend of integrating commercial spaces into public infrastructure projects
1. Urban Planning - Opportunities for urban planners to redesign streets and intersections
2. Transportation - Opportunities for transportation companies to develop innovative solutions for urban congestion
3. Commercial Real Estate - Opportunities for developers to integrate mixed-use spaces into urban infrastructure projects
