International multidisciplinary practice aedas has proposed 'the urban crossing', a mixed-use project to be placed within the linkong business park in Shanghai, China. Adjacent to an existing canal, a promenade and public plaza with grand stairs emerge from the water to lead
visitors up towards a void between two office towers. The bisected volumes are shifted and then interconnected with two elevated passages which weave the exterior form together into an iconic gateway.
The visually unified building creates diverse internal areas through a series of platforms at varied heights offering different perspectives of the city.
grand stairs leading to waterfront
Serving as a focal point to the existing complex, the program will contain offices, retail, galleries and a conference center. the blending of functions and vicinity to the waterfront generates a vibrant and attractive environment for both impromptu gatherings and large-scale events. Within the bridge, a sky lounge above the central void will offer unobstructed panoramic vistas of the landscaped grounds.
