urban regeneration

This urban design and regeneration project starts with the idea of buzz city and extends to interweave local cultural characteristics of Chongqing, and the rapidly changing Ninth Street. It focuses on amplifying, optimizing and celebrating the historical industrial technology and weaving process in Jiangbei. With this narrative, literally weaving patterns are designed to pavements and roads to bind the proposition together and support diverse urban ‘events’. And in an abstract way we interweave numerous design strategies: continuities : specialities, urban landscaping, a network of pop-ups and outdoor activities and interconnections between buildings.
