As a respect to historical weaving textile industry of Zhengzhou, we created sculptural-like landscape weave and fold to reveal an aesthetically pleasing public space. Series of undulating lawn stripe represent the silk being woven – up and down – into fabric sheets by traditional machine. Interval space is defined by matching the existing lobby pillars and architectural orders to stitch the landscape and building together in the master plan seamlessly integrated with car parking layout. Water feature stripes with sculpture is proposed in front of lobby drop-off as main welcoming elements.

With the fact that there are massive structure of new underground metro station beneath half of our landscape spaces, we took great care in coordination of paving patterns, manholes and planting soil depth to achieve a simplistic design result. This is including camouflaging the four ventilation shafts and emergency staircase structure that pops up in landscape with mirror finishes making them disappear visually.
