The project is located between two domestic top university campus – Dalian University of Technology and Dalian Maritime University. Based on the several problems in the base- the function is single and the level is low, which cannot meet the requirements of two universities and the city; the pedestrian flow and the vehicle flow are mixed and the vehicle flow is not consistent; the lack of public space with the boring pedestrian space as well as the non- distinctive landscape. The design tries to strengthen the connection between two campuses, linking two campuses by building an elevated pedestrian system and forming two sunken plazas at two ends of the pedestrian system, with the distribution of commercial and cultural function along the pedestrian system and plazas, to meet the requirements of college students and community residents, making this area a place of vitality.
