04 SHANGHAI PARK LIFE

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

MVRDV’s com­pe­ti­tion-win­ning de­sign for Zhangjiang Fu­ture Park com­bines 10,000 square me­tres of pub­lic plazas and 37,000 square me­tres di­vided over four venues: a li­brary, an art cen­tre, a per­for­mance cen­tre and a sports cen­tre. The park is part of a high-tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion district for na­tional and in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies and will host over 100,000 work­ers. The four dis­tinct build­ings all have ac­ti­vated roofs form­ing an el­e­vated area con­nected with pedes­tri­anised bridges that act as a sec­ond city layer and pro­vide views of the river and neigh­bour­hood and pic­nic ar­eas. The sus­tain­able ben­e­fits of the green roof pro­gramme in­clude storm wa­ter drainage, noise re­duc­tion and en­ergy sav­ings due to ther­mal in­su­la­tion.
