Designed as a contemporary living landmark, Solid Waves is a system that combines residence, green and public spaces and commercial and public infrastructure. Its unique and strong presence is a declaration for the sustainable future of the contemporary city; a place promoting social gathering and endorsing the need for collective green space.

Solid Waves generates a residential urban park; living, green and service spaces combined into a single neighborhood where programs and nature live off each other to create a new model for a symbiotic urban organism. The project operates also on a multiplicity of scales. While the towers are visible from a distance and take advantage, in terms of views, of the position of the complex within the city, a system of courts provides protected spaces sheltering inhabitants from the harsh weather elements while maintaining a close relation with the outdoors.
