Memory·Fusion·Symbiosis——Linking up the pearls on the East Bank of the Huangpu River: Yangjing, Zhongzhan and Yaohua Park, Shanghai, China.
In 2018, after 15 years of planning and construction, the riverside public open spaces within the 45 kilometers on both sides of the Huangpu River in Shanghai were connected. This realized the vision of "returning the river to the people and the scenery to the city". The construction of the three parks in this project have connected three important "key points" along the 21 km coastline on the East Bank of the Huangpu River.
The design artfully solved the problem of height differences between green spaces and the adjacent high-piled wharfs. It constructed a three-dimensional, multi-leveled system for cycling, running and walking. These “three roads” are connected with the river, water, flowers, and woods. They link up experiences for all ages, including activities that use all of the senses.
The project organically renews the riverside’s industrial shoreline, restores the environmental foundation on which the riverside space is based, and allows the riverside to become the ideal top-choice for public leisure.
With the cooperation of many multidisciplinary-professional design and research teams, we created an 180-degree panoramic balcony along the riverfront. The main cooperative unit of the project is Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Design, and the project was awarded the IFLA award of excellence in the park and open space category in 2019.
