The Nests Park


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.
