HKRI TaiKooHui | West Nanjing Road | Shanghai | China
Twin Ribbons is an indoor installation in HKRI Taikoo Hui, a top-class business, retail & entertainment hub in Shanghai downtown, at the heart of the vibrant district of Jing’an.
The installation comprises 2 almost identical red ribbons which are carefully bent in order to create an artificial and continuous topographical profile providing activities such as seating features, swinging objects, sliding ramps, slopes and mini amphitheaters among others.
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.
