Article source: RTA-Office

Shanghai Flower Garden Square project identifies itself with space and three-dimensional continuity. There are no elevations, no plans, or sections. This is space within solid objects. The genesis of the concept is based on a proposal that is more volumetric than linear, creating spaces in front of creating shapes. Unexpected spaces that enhance human life experience and seek to seduce the sensitive side, the emotional response.
