L&A design: In the 1950s, witnessing the city industrialization, the Guangzhou Ironworks carried the memories of the predecessors’ hard-working times and left a special childhood to the “descendants of the steel”. When the special eras of a generation gradually faded away and the sites solidified into industrial ruins, the blueprint for the future human settlement of the “Old City New District” slowly unfolded, and Guangzhou enters a new era of old city transformation…
A city is a living organism and needs metabolism. But this metabolism should be an “organic” renewal, like a cell renewal, not a simple replacement. – Wu Liangyong
The site is located at the gateway of Guangzhou Ironworks New District. As the main interface for urban renewal and as a comprehensive supporting facility for the entire area, it injects new vitality into this “new city” with a vibrant appearance.
Old factory New Development – Landscape integrate with Playground
▼城市正更新 The city is being updated
How to increase the carrying capacity of Guangzhou ironworks Zone to improve the living capacity of residents through optimizing urban space and site functions?
This is a problem that the La V-onderland design team has been thinking about during the design process.
In the end, we decided to build a landscape-style playground. It is a social platform for neighborhood life covered by all ages, providing a playground for children, and a public space for neighborhood interaction. It can also become a commercial landmark, seamlessly integrated with the site, improving site recognition.
Before the renovation, the site was not recognizable and popular. Space was lack of rhythmic circulation. The design team redesigned the plants on the site. Most of the trees have remained, and the middle and lower level plants are cleaned up to create a comfortable, transparent, simple, and refreshing planting space, and at the same time to meet the functions of site shade, viewing, isolation, and so on. At the same time, the site is divided into two major functional areas to create a place for activities.

The birth of the playground – The bees are coming.
▼小机械蜂绘本故事节选 The excerpt from the robot bee picture book
从中海甲方提出的“B.E.E”社区景观体系中，洛嘉团队设计了小机械蜂等IP形象， 并以小机械蜂与女孩的 IP 故事线串起整个乐园。
From the “B.E.E” community landscape system proposed by China Overseas Property, the La V-onderland team designed the IP images of the robot bees and connected the entire playland with the IP storylines of the robot bees and the little girl.
▼蜜蜂家族的成员们散落在乐园各处与孩子们一起玩耍、休憩 The members of the bees family are playing with kids in the playland.
▼机械蜂与女孩，则在高处见证着大家的欢乐。他们也成为了一个地标、一个场地记忆点 The robot bee and the little girl are watching the happy ground playing from the highland. They also become a landmark and a memory of the site.
From the image of the little bee, the design team extracted hexagonal beehive and the stripe pattern of the bees as the design language of the site to shape the plan. They created two functional areas of the beehive paradise and the beehive water theater with a relaxing and eventful place.
功能区 · 蜂巢乐园 Functional area Beehive Paradise
Here you can’t see the traditional slide and crawling net installation because they are embedded in the landscape equipment. The Beehive Paradise breaks the traditional form of children’s playground without limits of the gameplay and movement. Children can use their imagination to play here.
Without dazzling color, the wooden form pursues pure and natural textures. The small bee-themed sculpture makes the park more fit in the story and interactive. At the same time, it serves as an open public activity space with multiple rest and parents lounge, allowing parents to take care of the children’s movements.
功能区 · 蜂乐水剧场 Functional Area Beehive Water Theater
Playing in the water is an irresistible temptation for children. What is more exciting than playing with water on a hot summer day?
Tired of playing in Beehive Paradise? Go to Beehive Water Theater to cool down.
The amphitheater platform continues the design language of the hive, leaving enough space for rest. It is also like a theater, waiting for various events to be staged in this spacious square.
The multifunctional-shared space meets the needs of residents’ activities such as watching and being watched, playing and sitting communication, and contemplation.
Construction of the Playground – parametric design
Streamlined surface, smooth curves and rounded corners, dense mesh structure…With the parametric design, the design team turned the imagination into a rational and logical expression, breaking the boundaries of design and shaping more diverse and organic forms.
▼运用参数化设计，计算乐园整体的结构和六边形的分布方式 Use parametric design to calculate the overall structure of the park and the distribution of hexagons.
Patrik Schumacher called the parametric design “an important new style after modernism”, and its sci-fi sense and future sense opens a new era. With this technology, the Beehive Paradise also formed its most natural and friendly form.
La V-onderland Playland’s original combination of the parametric skin and the use of children’s facilities have truly realized the parametric design of the children’s activity playland that can be used by people and can be used daily. This place also expresses our best wishes for Guangzhou Ironworks New District.
▼精神堡垒的参数化 Parameterization of the Spiritual Fortress
The construction of the Beehive Paradise requires special-shaped processing. The double-curved design, the special-shaped elbow skeleton, and the special-shaped curved wooden board undoubtedly increase the difficulty of construction. The team used supplementary parameterization to control the positioning of hexagonal openings, irregular arc laser cutting, and grinding, 3D printing, and various adjustments according to the site to complete the installation…
▼测试木板的弯曲率，确保木板可以弯折的最大弧度 Test the bending rate of the wooden board to ensure the maximum arc that the wooden board can bend.
▼定制独特连接件，固定木板，保证完美贴合曲面 Customized unique connecting pieces to fix the wooden board to ensure the perfect fit to the curved surface.
▼现场吊装 On-site Installation.
In parametric design, one of the problems designers need to face is how to deal with the tension between the smooth and cold digital world and the rough and powerful physical world. Beehive Paradise has a perfect answer.
The La V-onderland design team transformed the site into a more complex, functional, and pleasing community public place. Hope this place is full of popularity and vitality.
Hope that this paradise can accompany children throughout their childhood. When they grow up and recall their memories, they can always remember the happiness brought by the Beehive Paradise and the bee friends at that time… Hope that the natural, pure and innocent feelings can be used as a keystone to building a solid fortress inside them.
The completion of a good project requires the cooperation and support of all partners. Special thanks to the support and trust given by the partners of Guangzhou China Overseas Property Real Estate Design Management Department, with whom the project can be presented to the public with the best appearance.
