The idea of this project is to inject public cultural space into the residential community. On side one exhibition space exists already, one art museum is designed by Rem Koolhaas and will be on the roof of a residential building. We will design the landscape of the central garden and reconstruct an existing building into a space for communication. In the garden, we designed an elevated way to connect the three public spaces in the area. Because Chinese residential communities today are always closed, we try to establish a new relationship between the contemporary closed residential community and the public urban space. At the same time we fuse the private and public parts of the gardens.
