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 interventions that take 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 that 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.
 
Most of the times, this typology combines several intervention tactics such as Painted Scapes and Grounded Objects, intervening existing urban settings, almost from the lens of Landscape Design, by creating spaces of opportunity for collective leisure, entertainment, play & joy, etc., catalyzing major social interactions across the neighborhood.
 
The main objective of this typology is to trigger a massive public interest to the place through a strong visual impact, usually of a permanent nature, encouraging the rise of high public affluence and establishing an urban landmark that can cultivate important human dynamics and boost commercial activity.
