Lead ArchitectMingming Zhao

In China's growing cities, spatial segregation and social isolation impede newcomers from integrating and establishing roots. Limited availability of beneficial public spaces exacerbates this issue. This project examines how interior design can tackle these challenges, promoting community, meeting needs, and creating positive gathering spaces with cultural elements. Tailored solutions aim to foster pride and strong connections among residents. The aspiration is for this public space to positively impact both residents and the city, fostering belonging and attachment.
