Studies ASPECT completed the first phase of the development of a hyperlane in Chengdu, China.
It is a multi-level linear park that stretches for a kilometer and a half. Alone or in combination with i superblocks, the Chengdu hyperlane will be a destination for youth culture and lifestyle in the heart of the city's university district of music and art, capable of changing the face of entire neighborhoods.
The long, sweet life
Hyperlane establishes a vibrant and playful linear space, connecting the local transport hub with the university community and the Chengdu campus. ASPECT design and architecture studios have designed it along to modify the physiognomy of a site in Chengdu previously occupied by a series of abandoned parking lots that offered no social or environmental value to the community.
Hyperlane responds to the unique needs and characteristics of students to replace a "dead" place with a living one. The design of the longitudinal park offers connections in every direction, creating a social space and a barrier-free pedestrian network that extend in length and allow themselves to be lived, appreciated and traveled.
Hyperlane: a road to touch points
The first phase of hyperlane in Chengdu is called "the urban gallery" and offers social experiences and connection points with the community.
The project supports young creative arts and musical culture: within the urban gallery there are several main areas.
The seaside" it consists of a network of planters, small basins of rainwater and multidirectional social sessions.
"The water carpet" it is designed to allow visual connectivity while creating a sense of arrival and transition. The combination of shallow water, bright displays, material contrasts and planting pots offer a visual and physical experience and a journey halfway between the urban promenade and the exhibition gallery.
