Renovation of the Riverside Moon Bay Park, access door and landmark forum building, Jinhua, China

A single object located at a singular point of the city.
The place: a park, a path that leads from one point of the city’s river front.

Some large pieces indicate the entrance to the park. Then a road with a gentle slope leads to an object. Initially the path is composed of several bands, and together, as we move forward on the journey these are separated in order to accommodate such green grass and create spaces for contemplation.

We design the building as if it were a precious object. Perhaps we remember a cloud, a cloud of steel fabric that dematerialises with intent to appear slightly.

Perhaps this is a great lamp. At night it transforms into a container of light. One point that emerges light that shines in the city. A singular point, a Landmark.

A large sculpture, a reflection of a civilization in time of change, in times of greatness, an era of brilliance.

It is a multipurpose, multifunction, a place to perform a multitude of activities.

Used as a bar and restaurant, also includes a series of social events and cultural activities both in its inner space partially covered, and outside.

Through the construction of landmark buildings, Jinhua aspires to be known as the City of Architecture and therefore invites the world’s best architects to design singular pieces, as in the Moonbay Park signed by RTA-Office and few years ago in the Architectural Park with its 17 pavilions built along the river Yiwu offering a route of 2 km, some of which designed by Herzog & de Meuron (Switzerland), Tatiana Bilbao (Mexico), Johan de Wachter Architects (Netherlands), Michael Maltzan (USA), Ai Wei (China).
