As China continues to amass economic wealth, its most evident feature on the globally observant stage is its growing interest in unconventional architecture. The architect is challenged by these new, revolutionary concepts, of which many suffer the burden of contrasts, abstracts and the contemporary. It is safe to say that historically China has been the birthplace of many cultures, and its determination to make history is worldly renown.
The proposed development by Plasma Studio in China is not for the faint of heart, with an expansive highway sized walkway, and transcending bridge. The project is destined to merge greenery and urbanism in ways that were never thought possible prior. Their distinguished proposal involves the integration of nature, with beams and structurally sound struts intended to be overwhelmed by nature, rather than be diminished by it is an indicator of efforts to curb China’s previous, often notably bad impression on ecologies.
Winding concrete paths, stricken with geometrically linear definitions create an effort built contrast to collide against the natural river delta and its surrounding backgrounds. With triangular glassworks and powerful illumination, China’s interests in designing an observably striking, yet sustainably green environment framework is both welcoming and indicative of the progress being made to assess future problems in all architecture.
