KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:
Hang Out is a creative public space intervention designed for one of the main plazas of a new mixed-use complex located in the New Bund, the emerging international business center in Pudong (Shanghai), with the aim of fostering entertainment & social interactions among new visitors, appealing to kids, youngsters & adults alike.
Inspired by the triangulation of crystals’ structures, the project is shaped as a huge hexagonal structure from which different fun features are hanging down, creating a suspended public space.
This is a particular design approach that has been researched and tested for a while in our office, and has been finally implemented in an outdoor public space. A hanging public space in which all the functions are provided from above, experimenting with the feeling of gravity added to daily public features.
