A 1,400 sqm. sales pavilion and showroom for a new mixed-use development in Shanghai. This will become a retail building once the entire development is completed. (pavilion completed fall 2014). Work performed while with Perkins Eastman Architects.
This pavilion is the face of the "New Park" development, which is currently under construction. The client desired for the development to be reminiscent of New York City, and following that direction, our team developed a concept for this pavilion that projects the imagery of New York to the outside.
The form is 4 stacked boxes that slightly shift and morph, each clad with custom perforated metal panels. The building has 5 sides: four unique elevations plus an introspective roof terrace. The pavilion will become a part of a larger L-shaped retail building with outdoor retail alleys serving as circulation.
Our team was responsible for developing this larger retail environment through SD. My responsibilities during this stage of the project included facade studies for one of the two primary retail buildings, design studies for this feature pavilion as well as two adjacent smaller pavilions, and an enclosure structure for the rooftop pool on top of the main retail building.
