▼沿河线性公园概览，the linear park extending along the river
L&A team provided a brand new concept to construct this elongate park. Following the principles of involvement, connectivity, openness and unity, the design links all parts of the park and reconnects the river and the city. To break down barriers set by the narrow river course, the team utilized three-dimensional design methods including pushing-pulling-suspending-floating to expand the space. It does not only provide multi-dimensional sight-seeing experiences, but also creates comprehensive sensory experience of visual, auditory, olfactory and haptic feelings.
Diverse spatial forms
The new connection made able through river course enriches lives. At every key location, diverse spatial forms and functions are delivered according to different needs and demands of people in proximity.
