The slums of the Constantine Baldo district (Algeria) are located on a very steep hillside, plagued by flooding and disrupting the patterns of urban texture. The aim of this international competition is to create a waterfront city park for strolls and leisure activities. The plan respects the direction of which water flows. The constructions on the top of the hills offer its residence a new view overlooking the city park, and finally a tramway system is to be installed into the main zones of the area.
