The Gardens of SWFC
“…an urban respite of man, commerce and nature…”
Nested at the base of the looming Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC), the Gardens of SWFC proposes to offer a counterpoint to the growing urban core of Shanghai’s Pudong financial district. As the forecourt and transition to the SWFC, a deft weave of gardens and experiences blends the street into the tower’s elevated deck above. Sunlight fills the natural voids to the woven realm of subterranean shops and restaurants below to complete this new social respite for Pudong.
