in today’s flat and homogeneous urban context we value the variety of industrial relics on site. our scheme juxtapose a group of new constructions with the old, and creates a heterogeneous scenery. the historical and the futuristic, the natural and the artificial, each carrying distinct urban lives, which together construct a montage scenario.
a group of different objects stand side by side facing the landscape across the river, and meanwhile becomes a scenery themselves .people come here and experience different urban scenario: work, leisure, art, history and many more. this is the pleasure of urban life.
