Ningbo Daily Newspaper Building is located above Sanjiangkou, the core area of Ningbo. It was originally used by the Newspaper Group for office use. The owner cooperated with the Newspaper Group through a lease to change the project from office to commercial. The goal is to create an all-category and multi-format urban learning complex for various types of training formats of different ages, and to build the most influential integrated platform for quality education and training in Ningbo with the Concert Hall.
Named “Cheese Park”, the project uses the English “cheese” homophonic Chinese “knowledge” and intends to use the power of knowledge to move the knowledge city of Ningbo. The old reform projects were dancing with shackles, while the office reform business required dancers to have more flexibility to turn around in order to find freedom in the restrictions and detonate power under the constraints.

The original square on the south side of the base is used as a two-story parking lot. The nearest parking space is no more than 20 meters from the entrance of the concert hall. The north side Lingqiao is being closed for maintenance. We started to dissect the original site. The so-called “pain is unreasonable and general is not painful”, the biggest pain point of the original venue is unreasonable. The outdoor space around the original building is almost completely occupied by the parking lot, and there is a lot of barriers for all parties to enter; the traffic flow has become the protagonist of the site, resulting in a smooth flow of people. On the first floor, the car is the protagonist of the venue, and it is difficult to communicate between the east, the west and the south. On the second floor, there is only parking, and there is no supporting role. With such obstacles, where does the commercial vitality come from?
▼改造前后对比，comparison before and after renovation
First of all, we carried out a comprehensive transformation of the parking lot. This six-seven-thousand-square-square venue has been turned into a park with a distinctive theme. With its passion and participation, it has become a destination in itself. At the same time, it is integrated with the municipal park to form a complement in function and form. The height difference of the third-level platform is the key point of design and transformation.

Secondly, the north-south flow of people will be connected. The square on the north side needs to be restored to a convergent gravity flow interface after the restoration of the Lingqiao is completed and quickly introduced into the commercial interior. The street on the south side will be widened and the driveway will be invisible to put the human experience first. The east-west direction of the original car dealership was changed into a pedestrian passageway, which echoed the riverfront entrance to form a corridor, adding a layer of internal commercial flow of people. Cut off a part of the basement at the southwest corner, and turn the originally blocked interface into a receptive square space. The gravity of the bell mouth is used to draw the pedestrian flow into the inner street business.

After the large context of the venue is combed and unblocked, the next step is to give her an image color. The shape of the venue depends on the shape of the users themselves. The positioning of the integrated platform for quality education and training helped us define the characteristics of the crowd in this place-from infants to young people as the main body, as well as learning parents and young people in the workplace. This group of young and dynamic users determines that the scenery here must be warm, bright and vivid; their behavior characteristics also determine that the space must be interactive, integrated and highly involved.
After the site was smooth and the crowd was clear, we began to reconstruct the landscape space.Every pain point after refactoring completed her gorgeous turn. The recognition of a site will determine its memory and transmission in the crowd. Clear personality and easy dissemination are the characteristics of the deep site we are going to shape. So under all circumstances, we try to inject its uniqueness into the place.

Vanke defined the case as a cheese park and created an image spokesperson for the park, the cheese cat. We constructed this cheese cat in the form of space, a large structure composed of steel tubes and steel nets with angular blocks and faces combined, with triangular pointed ears of cats and eyes, two big eyes just It forms the exit of the slide and the entrance of the rope climbing-it is itself a playground. There is beauty and personality, if there is content, why not love it? So we want cheese cats to not only sell cute and cool, but also need to be able to spread knowledge so that they won’t be stigmatized.

Fun gravity paradise
An apple fell on the tree, someone saw the apple, someone saw autumn, and Newton saw gravity. We also saw gravity between the two roofs that remained intact and the three countertops on the south side of the pond site. So we found her knowledge connotation for the cheese cat, so we have the fun gravity park and water gravity park. “Give me a fulcrum, I can pry up the whole earth,” Archimedes said. We combined the characteristics of the venue and found the knowledge point of “gravity” to try to leverage the children’s vast knowledge system in the future.

Gravity towers, gravity cables, weight rings, and other gravity-related mechanical game devices allow children to experience the existence of various mechanical knowledge such as weightlessness, overweight, centrifugal force, centripetal force, free fall, energy conversion, and friction. We have even tried to simulate the feeling of gravitational field through swirling paving and specific experience points, so that such advanced knowledge can be intuitively experienced.

Water gravity paradise
Borrowing the water features preserved in the original bridgehead park, we have extended a variety of water gravity games, water pressure games, water play valves, pressure water pans, cosmic water rings, gravity water play, etc. for children Having more understanding of water and more experience of water gravity during play.

In addition to this theme park with “gravity” as the fulcrum, combined with the city’s waterfront interface bridgehead space, etc., we have also analyzed the various behaviors of the original citizen ’s life and this land, hoping that the new design is not to cut them off The relationship of the original life mode is to strengthen their daily behavior experience and give them richer and more complete memories.

From the newspaper industry building to the cheese park, after a series of dissection, combing, and reconstruction, we finally let the land in the center of the city shine again with a bright light and infinite vitality.
