Since the site used to be a welding platform for shipbuilding, 100 Architects came up with the idea of creating an eye-catching and stimulating public space which would serve 2 specific purposes:

Providing a modern public platform to activate the scarcely used space by encouraging social dynamics and interactions.

And bringing back the old memories of the industrial and social splendor on the banks of the Huangpu River.

To honor the memory and identity of this particular space, we decided to propose the design reminiscing a ship under construction process while respecting the marvelous bronze grid on the floor.

The ship is manifested through a system of Corten steel ribs arising from the bronze stripes, mimicking the shape of an unfinished vessel which contains a variety of public space features, such as seating, gathering, resting, lounging or playing areas, all of them laid out from the bow to the stern.

Neighborhood Intervention

What is a neighborhood intervention?
This is the medium-scale type of intervention that takes place in the public realm of a city, related to the altering of a portion of a neighborhood. A type of intervention of such magnitude and notoriety impacts not only the immediate surrounding urban environment but rather the urban dynamics of a whole neighborhood, becoming an urban landmark and a local attractor of social interactions in a given neighborhood.
 
The main objective of this typology is to trigger massive public interest in the place through a strong visual impact and injection of activities, encouraging the increase of high public influx and establishing an urban landmark that can cultivate important human dynamics and boost commercial activity. These phenomena are achieved through the creation of spaces for leisure, entertainment, play and collective joy, catalyzing important social interactions throughout the neighborhood.
 
This topology of intervention, normally is used by real state developers to bring fresh and unique ideas to the public realm of their urban developments, which contributes to stand out in the market, establishing a distinct brand identity through innovative, and user-oriented design solutions that enhance the quality of life and thus, the appeal and value in the eyes of potential buyers or tenants, increasing the marketability of the project and potentially leading to higher property values, rental rates and ultimately faster sell out. This interventions maximize the value of the entire neighborhood.

It’s not classical landscape architecture where design focuses on elegant alignment with a space’s existing character, but “injecting identity into places that do not have one,” he says.
