Changsha / China / 2017

The concept masterfully highlights the start of the new urban axis on Lake Meixi in the southwest of Changsha and creates a multi-functional, public space, which opens up to the city. The Meixi Urban Helix rises up above a man-made plateau in the lake; with a surface area of some 20,000 square meters it comprises a six to eight-meter wide accessible ramp, which spirals to a height of 34 meters. As a vantage point it affords visitors a panorama view of the planned urban expansion and of Lake Meixi, which is about 40 hectares in size. On the inside of the helix the ramp leads down a reverse-spin ramp from the highest point and becomes a raised urban axis that introduces visitors to the new district.
