Placed as objects in the flow of commuters, the buildings organiseoutdoor spaces of different scales and provide a platform for a variety of urban activities. The facade design emphasises the buildings as singular objects.The curved geometry of the buildings,with strong vertical lines, anchors the buildings within the city. The faceted and colored texture of the facades will provide achanging appearance when approached from different directions,addingto the dynamics of this Shanghai location.
