This a landscape conceptual design with DDon Associates for a mix-use development by Vanke in Shunyi, an airport district in the north of Beijing metropolitan. Our concept idea sets off from a given architectural layout which has divided a 2.5ha area into several disconnected space. The design introduced a common central promenade with vibrant yellow color that stitches those separated space(courtyard, sunken plaza, streetscape,etc) also more importantly, it is an icon that helps to activate the blight surroundings and to establish a lifestyle of young people/business people in the context of airport district. Alongside the central yellow promenade, multiple and diverse occupiable places such as cafe terrace, sun deck, recreational berm, seating planters are heavily configured to contain people, to facilitate the adjacent shops/retails and to program amenities in this public realm.
The projects is carried through into further stage.
