THE BLUE LINE aims at providing a sustainable development framework for the islands as well as an infrastructural backbone for the future urban development of the entire metropolis.

The best way to preserve and develop the Islands in keeping with the aim of the project would be to improve the way people access the islands. Being sensitive to the existing conditions, the proposal by Triple O Studio is not to build new bridges, but to enhance the existing ones; make them more comfortable for all means of transport but more importantly for the pedestrians, cyclists and public transit users. Through the existing access systems of elevated bridges allowing for experiencing the site from an elevated promenade, its majesty can be fully discovered.
