Off-The Grid, Bab Al Bahrein Square
OFF-THE GRID, BAB AL BAHREIN SQUARE Autonomous from the existing urban development, the new Bab Al Bahrein square is a self-sustained island, a field for public life as reclaimed by citizens. No rhetorical monumentality, no arab decorative clichés give shape to its form. Conversely, the square asserts its nature of an infrastructural system using energy autonomy as a means for supporting public life and political freedom.
