Now Reading: Urban Bloom Project [Shanghai]
Written 2 weeks ago by
The collaboration between AIM Architecture and URBAN MATTERS, ‘Urban Bloom Project’ is an experimental project putting space and activities above infrastructure. A parking lot got transformed into a city garden, constructed entirely of artificial means. Various flowers and plants were placed around the space to bloom and flourish in the bustling Anfu Road. Wood stillage and giant plastic balls fill the gaps between modern buildings, creating a unique setting that aims to encourage citizens to stop and explore.
“More and more urban life is a negotiation between where we need to be, and where we want to be. What we have, and how much we don’t need. As life increasingly moves toward crowded cities, we are interested in creating a space that caters to enjoyment of that space, on its own merit and terms.”
