Description
This plaza and landscape, designed by Urbanus, is the new northern access point to Jade Bamboo Park which is one the rare surviving pieces of topography in Shenzhen, a city flattened by development. The park had been cut off by surrounding development and this was the only vacant lot available due to a technicality. As part of the deal with the developer, structured parking had to be built under the landscape.
