Twin Ribbons
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.

Taking advantage of the highest bends of the ribbons, green & blue functional boxes were plugged-in as add-on capsules with playful slopes within.

Both ribbons are confronted to each other, almost creating an infinite symbol, resulting with 2 different enclosed areas for EDUTAINMENT (education + entertainment). The green area is intended for educative workshops and performances, while the blue area is more focused on educative games and entertainment.

The project was designed as an indoor activation of the public space within the main atriums, generating a meeting & entertainment spot for social interactions at the heart of the retail space, visible from all the floors, encouraging the gathering and interaction of people.

Twin Ribbons not only create an eye-catching cyclical platform as a challenging path to be traveled by jumping, climbing, sliding and crawling up and down. It also provides functional shapes to host different adult-related activities, such as speeches, workshops, performances, etc…

Grounded Object

Product definition

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.
