Parks turn waste into art
On September 6, our reporter saw five large-scale sculptures in Daijiahu Park. These sculptures were created using the discarded mechanical parts of the Qingshan industrial construction period. They made full use of the design aesthetics of the industrial parts and reflected the industrial history of the Qingshan area through the use of this new combination.
The signs in the park are made of red bricks. More than 200,000 red bricks used in paving the road in the park are from the buildings demolished in the renovation of the old city of Qingshan District.
The recycling of various types of waste in the park represents the concept of sustainable development; it also presents an environmental education that helps citizens build up their environmental awareness. It is the embodiment of urban culture that can highlight local history.
