Skypark revalues a former unused rooftop of an infrastructure building, converting it into a recreational strip, with the Shenzhen skyline as a backdrop. As a way of giving back to the neighborhood, the park connects to adjacent buildings via sky bridges, bringing students and sports enthusiasts on a platform designed for them - connecting educational institutions with the local community in a unique combination of sports and recreational offers, tied together with the landscape. The park aims to enable a healthy urban lifestyle that complements the city's youthful, entrepreneurial spirit.
