A pedestrian-friendly walking street which will be developed as a destination where people can mingle with friends and family. To provide an integrated public space network at every scale, porous and connected to surroundings and to outline human-society relationships, the followings act as driving forces- the role of culture in shaping space, the image of the city and the role of public space in shaping interpersonal relations.
