A Landscape Of Curvaceous Shapes Was Designed For This Park
June 9, 2021
ASPECT Studios has designed the landscaping for The Urban Gallery at Hyperlane in Chengdu, China, which transformed a derelict space used for parking into a community park.
The park consists of three key spaces, an urban promenade, a water carpet, and a performance gallery.
Terraced seating with curved edges provides a place to relax underneath the trees, while the nearby water features that surround pathways create a calming environment.
At night, the tiered seating has lighting that highlights the curved edges.
Other design elements include a ‘backdrop ribbon’ that’s made from vertical white strips, framed planters, and curved benches.
Pavers in different shades have been used to create even more curves throughout the landscape design.
Here’s a glimpse of the plan that shows the layout of the park.
