In the harbour area, a narrow stretch of land alongside a dock is freed from port activities. A very simple ‘chopstick’ urban plan is being developed by O.M.A. in which open green pockets alternate with dense construction.
In order to give the linear plan a notion of centrality, a public path is designed to cross the whole strip. The site for the school faces one green area on its south side, the dock on its west side, a square and a housing block to the north and the harbour road to the east.
