The project is located in the Shanghai West Bund. The client plans to upgrade 30 security kiosks along the West Bank, which have the comprehensive functions of public service. The West Bund Park and major art galleries have become a platform for Shanghai residents to participate in public activities and experience art and culture. How to meet the respective conditions of different venues and integrate the functions of information interaction, public services, security management, etc., is the problem to be solved by this project.

We use variable-angle cabin modules to adapt to different site roads and landscape views. Different from the traditional security pavilion, the open and changing kiosk presents an inviting gesture, enhancing the sense of public participation. It provides a place where people can relax, talk, inquire, shop, and get emergency assistance. Hinges and bearings turn simple forms into interactive urban landscapes that are changeable and adaptable to different sites.

It is not only a machine, but also a movable space, breaking people’s traditional expectations of architecture, blurring the boundaries between objects, buildings and events, and delivering part of the power to shape the space into the hands of users.
