Wired Scape: Where Imagination, Nature, and Community Converge
Step into Wired Scape, an innovative public space project nestled within a residential district of Guangzhou, China. Here, the realms of imagination, nature’s beauty, and community engagement intertwine to offer an unparalleled and unconventional experience.
This project draws its inspiration from the captivating landscapes of Guangdong province, embracing the essence of China’s diverse topography. The natural wonders of mountains, lakes, and forests serve as our muse, their geometric forms providing the guiding principles for our design.
A distinctive touch defines this proposal—the aesthetic of every element is intricately woven with pipes and wires. These elements encase shapes, akin to a cozy layer of wool. Picture lines and pipes converging in varied directions, crafting a tactile texture reminiscent of woven fabrics.
The playground’s centerpiece stands tall, echoing the majestic mountain forms. This towering 3-story landmark beckons young adventurers to climb its heights and descend through a trio of slides, each with its own level of challenge.
The language of patterns etched onto the ground evokes ancient Chinese paintings, where fluid lines dance with geometric grace. These undulating lines traverse the entire expanse, giving life to green spaces, a sunken plaza, and play zones.
Mirroring the elegance of a serene lake, these lines weave a narrative where water cascades from lofty mountain peaks into a magical central pond, transforming the playground’s heart into a sunken plaza.
But the spectacle doesn’t stop at mountains and lakes. Artificial trees, designed in harmony with the park’s aesthetic language, stand as playful installations and shading structures, extending the allure of Wired Scape.
Beyond the structured elements lies a lush embrace of nature—green areas adorned with a variety of trees, planters, and flowerbeds. Their forms, fluidly sculpted by the same undulating lines, unify the space into a coherent and captivating tapestry.
Wired Scape is a symphony where design and nature harmonize, beckoning you to explore, unwind, and forge connections. It’s an embodiment of creativity, a canvas where lines and forms narrate tales of play, togetherness, and the beauty of Guangzhou’s landscapes.

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.
Drawing inspiration from the characteristic vibrant summer vibes and beach hues of the famous beach of La Barceloneta, we named it "La Barcelonita", envisioning it as the little sister of La Barceloneta.
The design of Loopy Bridge seamlessly weaves a pathway around the geometric patterns inspired by water ripples, creating a singular, harmonious trace.
