Big Bang is a creative public rooftop activation designed for a new mixed-use building located in the New Bund, the emerging international business center in Pudong (Shanghai), with the aim of fostering entertainment & social interactions among new visitors, appealing to kids, youngsters & adults alike.
Big Bang Movie
The project is located in a 2-story rooftop which is always open to public, with direct access from the street level and the indoor commercial space. It sets an outdoor public platform for social interactions.
The design was conceptualized as an explosion of colors in the public rooftop of the commercial building, releasing colorful debris from the epicenter to the sides, which becomes either seating features or shading structures.
In the epicenter of the explosion emerges a hill of activities, dividing the multifunctional platform in 2 areas. One side of the hill is dedicated to playful activities for the entertainment of the younger visitors, such us slopes, tunnels, climbing surfaces, etc…
The other side of the hill was designed to host small gatherings, events and workshops, not only for kids but for youngsters and adults as well, and therefore it features different types of tribunes and mini-amphitheaters.
The resulting intervention is rendered as a system of 4 transversal stripes of triangulated colors and various activities, occupying the rooftop from border to border. A public platform for social interactions and dynamics impossible to miss when walking through the rooftop.

It is an inhabitable architectural object inserted on top of an existing urban environment, but alienated from its surroundings.
This architectural object intervenes in the space by touching the ground and acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, allowing people to stand on top of it and interact directly.
The main objective of this conceptual prototype is to trigger a massive public interest to the place, encouraging the rise of high public affluence, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
