Xuhui Runway Park
On April 10, Sasaki and AIA Shanghai organized a weekend tour of Xuhui Runway Park for a group of almost thirty architects. Sasaki associates and landscape designers Zhu Yu and Tianwen Zhou led the tour sharing the design ideas for the park, the site’s history as a former airport runway, and the interesting stories that happened throughout the design process and during construction.
There were seven learning objectives for the group during the tour:
The team explained the seven objectives in detail and shared the design process and features of the park. The AIA group raised a lot of interesting questions for the team, giving lots of positive feedback on its implementation. Overall it was a great way to spend the beautiful spring Saturday.
