Shaci Memorial Tower
Competition proposals for a new sculpture garden and public viewing tower to a prominent site overlooking the JiaLing River. The District wants to celebrate ShaPingBa’s fame as the seat of China’s higher education during the second world war years. Our proposal makes a connection between the Pagoda and the Lantern as enduring cultural symbols of attainment and illumination, and encloses a lift and stair tower – for public access to a viewing platform – with a translucent perforated steel enclosure.
