The longitudinal spine that runs through the ZhangJiaBang Green Wedge is an opportunity for an extraordinary linear balcony along the whole park. Combining the character of a fitness, health and security infrastructure brings interesting conditions that invite to a cultural understanding of the park’s ecology. This thin line acts as a key element in the landscape, as an object in itself, acquiring a minimal and elegant yet rotund image, with its undulating profile. The combination of a technical approach, developping the project from the optimization of the section, and the plastic one, that establishes the Yellow color (deeply charged of symbolism in Chinese culture) as a key project element, distinguish this “Spaguetti Pavilion” from any other infrastructure nearby, and allow it to enhance the natural dimension of the park.
