The city of Split and its waterfront, Riva, is among the most interesting and most specific sites in the Mediterranean. Split waterfront is an urbanized, public space, 1700 years old. It stands in front of the Diocletian's Palace, summer residence of a Roman emperor.
250 meter long and 55 meter wide, it is the city's main public square - a multi-functional space for social events, festivals and celebrations. All urban equipment was especially designed for this project. The design is deliberately contemporary, providing a new level of urban tissue, complementary to the existing one. This kind of contrast is characteristic for the city of Split, which is positively filled with confrontations of old and new, successfully cohabiting within the same urban locations.
This project was made in cooperation with 3LHD architects.
