Gothenburg RiverCity

East won a place on the International Workshop for RiverCity Gothenburg with a team including Professor Susannah Hagan (environmental sustainability) and Chris Hall from GVA (economic development). The final masterplan for the RiverCity will be completed this year. East’s masterplan basis proposes to connect the historic city to the south with the residential areas north of the river Göta älv across the underused old free harbour with a new piece of city - BridgeCity - as well as the creation of a large lake with floating familiy housing to help manage an increasing problem with flooding of the city.

The port uses are proposed strengthened with a centrally located ferry and cruise terminal as well as an inner city beach for the summer and a new type of internal public space for the long winter as part of a new cultural centre on the central pier of the old free harbour.
