Sity in Shangai contemporary

Sity in Shangai

Sity is an inspiration from the trace of the river valley in a plan situation and at the same time a reflex of the heavily
contrasting roof levels in the area. Representing a common silhouette, the spiral, it simultaneously adds new elements to
the scenery. It lowers itself to the ground and than elevates itself again in the most astonishing and extravagant way.
With its height, the project challenges even the tallest edifices in the district, whilst its spiral shape offers unique sights of
the horizon from each different angle. “Sity” is a contextual and logical project designed for Shanghai, strategic accent in
the urban planning.

The structure will be integrated in all urban layers. It establishes contacts in all possible directions by all possible means.
The project concentrates on transport communication by air, as well as land, water, underground and terrestrial means.
The “Sity” offers , opportunities for walking and cycling in park surroundings, including specifically designated places,
free of traffic, that are reestablished on a large scale. The terrestrial surface of the area is available for the development of
unlimited green vegetation and microclimate. Parks, are provided and aimed at counterpoising the strenuous everyday
life, providing tranquility and peace.

The seemingly vanguard design, unfamiliar concept in the developments realized up till now, is actually a classic and
mathematically logical structure. Exceptionally symbolic and easily recognizable, it could be sketched with a few strokes
by everyone. The structure addresses common conceptions such as elevation, floor planning, verticality, horizontality etc.
“Sity” represents contemporary architecture at its best, it establishes new relations and perceptions and defines innovative
bounds of space and infinity.

Infinity is a symbol of the great heritage and traditions of China. The dynamics of the projects reflects the hectic rhythm
of Shanghai – a centre of innovations, new technologies, extreme heights, advancement and sustainability.

The project embodies a steady conceptual platform, resistant to all natural phenomena such as earthquake stability,
maximum sunlight exposure, natural ventilation, water refrigeration and air conditioning, power production, clearing
installations and perhaps all future technologies, which will be seen for the first time in Shanghai!

The large sculpture creates a flowing pattern that the eye follows all the way down. The form takes up a large section of the space but still leaves pleanty of room around.
