  7. 7. CONNECTION + LAKE NAIVASHA NATIONAL PARK MT.SUSWA VALLEY VIEW NAIROBI CONCEPT UBRICA- 1
  8. 8. CONNECTION + CONCEPT UBRICA- 1 "Plus" has various meanings. But the first picture that comes to our mind is its symbolic representation (+), which has 4 connecting ends. We use this property of "Plus" to bring people together. We create 2 green corridors along the 2 axis of plus: • An entry portal with trees on either side, to form a boulevard • It aligns with the visual line between the 2 existing mountains, Mount Suswa and Mount Longonot. MT. LONGONOT MT.SUSWA
  9. 9. CONCEPT UBRICA- 1 • Another green active corridor runs throughout the site horizontally, which connects different districts. • This corridor is designed to be the "active corridor" with mixed land uses. CONNECTION +
  10. 10. SHARE + CONCEPT UBRICA- 1 “Share” is one of the essential qualities to build a harmonious and prosperous city. We want to encourage this quality among the people. Through our design, we tried to achieve this by creating shared outdoor spaces such as: • Central park for the entire city. • A long green corridor that has public spaces such as recreation center, small parks, children play area, well equipped sports complex, urban plazas, theaters, and many other spaces which are shared by all the districts. • Healing Gardens with all facilities for everyone to promote their health and interactions with others.
