The continental scale determinates the urban planning approach, aiming to meet cultural, political, social, economic and ecological parameters. Crimson Rose is a multicultural conurbation with different social groups, expatriates, locals, tourists and the dwellers of the villages. It offers them the opportunity to better interact in a lively surrounding. The urban public is the new scale of interest in an age where public life is more and more shifting to landscape scale activities and policies. It is a form of collective identity implicit in the branding as progressive ecological environment. The built void in the heart of Crimson Rose offers a marvellous view over the urban public. It is a space dedicated to leisure and public infrastructures. The seafront nuclei and the urban circuits landmark the built void framed by high-rise building rows. The infills are built spaces spanned up by the urban circuits of Crimson Rose and have main connections to all infrastructures. They combine different programmatic levels, including dwellings. A buoyant skyline stretches from the hubs over the urban circuits and the walk belt around the built void.
