This considerably wider section of the trestle bridge provides an excellent opportunity to create a public space worthy of visiting, a place to stay and whiling away some time.

Therefore, 100 Architects proposes the design of a pocket lounge plaza floating over the Huangpu River.

In order to enhance the experience related to water, this section of the trestle bridge has been conceptually re-designed as a water pond, where the water that comes out of the Water Plant flows into the pond lounge.

While along the narrower sections of the bridge the pedestrian circulation is faster, our water pond intends to slow down the pace of the pedestrian currents, facilitating the reservoir for the social interactions, similarly to the water streams forming a pond.

The chromatic proposal along with the patterns and shapes of the painted scape, are inspired by the different states of water, such as splashing, flowing or stagnating, which defines various dynamics of interacting with the space.

Painted Scape

Product definition

The Painted Scape is a 2d architectural configuration, which is painted and/or coated to cover a significant area of an existing urban scape. This architectural configuration only intervenes – whether vertically or horizontally - on the surface of the space.
 
The interaction takes place in the interface between the user and the painted surfaces - vertical or horizontal - in which the users finds information, signals, functional areas and spaces.
 
The main objective of the painted scape is to call attention to the existing space, inject it with a unique identity, and highlight spatial functions with 2d aesthetics. Through these actions, this intervention makes a formerly unremarkable space an attraction for users and customers.
