New Urban Theaterism: The project is a community-based commercial complex located on the bank of Yangcheng Lake crossed by an existing river. We expect to create 6 differentiated prototype spaces within the site - a series of public gathering places belonging to the city. The landscape space is a series of stages for our city, and the public life of Xinghu community is the repertoire staged within it. The spatial tenet of commercial landscape coincides with theater typologies; in which, both seeks to celebrate formal and informal gathering with multiplicity of sight lines.
