The Nests Park
Landscape design at Dong Chang Zhi road crossing Xi An road, Shanghai.

This project is located in the middle of a super busy and large roads intersection in Hongkou district; even if the natural vocation of the site is to be a kind of roundabout unused traffic division area, we were challenged to transform it into a public park.
The project will be divided in two phases to adapt better to the fast development of the area into high-rise office buildings and commercial zone and to the consequent mutation of the street asset.
By coincidence the first phase site shape looks exactly like a google map pin and because the site will be mostly watched from the top view because of the high rise surrounding buildings we though to make it red so to make it really look like a pin especially from the people browsing the map on google satellite.
In the second phase we simply repeated the first phase circular roundabout shape all along the park site creating many round courtyard thanks to donuts shaped ground that creates an enveloped volume around the small seating areas giving privacy to the visitors that are protected from the noisy surrounding streets. To give even more sense of protection and to also create landmarks visible from the people passing by car we placed on the donuts bamboo structure sculptures that creates visual and shadow protection in the daytime and sculptural urban lamps in the night time.

竹巢公园
景观设计 – 上海虹口区东长治路西安路交界

项目地点位于上海虹口区繁忙吵杂的大型交通主干道交界处,未被使用的回旋状交通分支区。而我们的挑战则是将这样一个处境尴尬的地点逐渐转变成一个受欢迎的公共景观公园。

项目将被分为两个阶段,以便更好的适应和贴合周边规划建造的办公大楼和商业区域,以及街道住宅区随之而来的更新改建。

由于项目的特殊位置与角度,我们认为周边高楼的商务人士或居民将最经常能够观望俯视到该地点,而偶然间我们又发现该项目地点从高处被观望时像极了一个谷歌百度“地图别针”。因此在第一阶段,我们将特别把它设计成红色以给观察者增加更多视觉冲击力和趣味感,甚至在大家真正地使用电子地图搜索引擎中发现这个有趣且真实存在的环形“红色地图别针”。

第二阶段中,我们将在第一阶段环形地形上进行改造。巧妙地增加一些适合该地形的巢穴拱形庭院从而阻隔外界繁杂的交通噪音和污染,并且创造更多带功能性私密性的休憩空间给周边居民,商务人士或行人。通过这样的竹制巢穴景观设计手法,不仅能为在其中使用的人群提供一定的安全性保护性,同时给开车经过的驾驶者们也带来了视觉上的自然享受,最后在细节功能性方面,竹制巢穴形景观在白天黑夜还能起到遮阳与照明的作用。
