Redevelopment of an old neighborhood in Shanghai.
The project is in an old neighborhood, which has experienced a dramitic increase in population, while at the same time its resources and services remained the same. Hongkou District is home to many residents of Shanghai who are leaving in old and heavily dense zone, with very basic
The Project is a collaboration between Politecnico di Milano in Italy and the Tongji University in Shanghai.
In the design, I wanted to preserve the character of Hongkou and to mixed the different types of usages throughout the Master plan. Every few buildings create a Residential Complex, which hosts a public space for its residents and bring the social environment to a more private scale for the reisdents.
These residential complexes also include commercial activities that would attract more livelyhood to the block. The pathways are designed to create an access throughout the site. Moreover there are public social gathering spaces between the buildings, which would create a friendly environment for the residents and the visitors.
Vertical Social Gathering spaces are made by voids in the buildings. This will help to bring the community together and to minimize the distance for social environments for all its residents.
