South Bund extension
Shanghai CN –Millions of Shanghai’s inhabitants and visitors are drawn to the Bund, the majestic promenade along the river Huanpu. The rapidly growing metropolis of Shanghai is in constant need of additional infrastructure and facilities for the business community, such as the new Central Business District at the southern part of the Bund. Projects like these are also a great opportunity for restoring the direct connection of some old neighbourhoods with the Bund. Due to the embankment in the Huanpu, the river was hardly visible anymore.
An urban oasis
KC was asked to make plan sketches for the South Bund extension. The result was a spectacular multi-level skypark that further restores the relation between city and waterfront. This urban oasis invites people to hang around, meet each other and enjoy the city.
