Entry Description

We designed a series of public facilities in the Runway Park that was renovated from the century-old Longhua Airport in Shanghai. Mapping the layout according to the Runway Park’s linear site, we set up a series of concrete walls in different lengths at various intervals. These walls divide the space and support a truss-made folded plate roof system. These pitched roofs metaphor airplanes taking off, dancing with the past to the music of history, as they extend in fluctuating heights in the direction of the Runway Park.
