DESCRIPTION

One of the few existing public spaces in bahrain, the bab al bahrain square has been progressively turned into a series of surface parking lots. still, due to its historical importance and its centrality within the island, it holds the potential to become a lively urban public square; located at the entrance of the manama suq it has the advantage of belonging to a tight urban structure which still benefits from a natural pedestrian network. once located a stone’s throw away from the sea, it is today physically separated from the sea due to the land reclamation projects which have taken place since the 1950s. the competition therefore poses the double challenge of reviving the memory of the sea on the site and proposing a viable urban square taking into consideration the new changes in lifestyles and behaviorism in the arab world. considering the recent political events that have taken place across the region, the competition seeks to question what a contemporary public space in the arab world should look like. how will it be used? who will use it? how will it integrate within the rest of the urban fabric of the city? what will it represent?
