EDGING A&LA: “Childish Street Corner” project, as Kunshan City, “Kun Xiaowei – Share Lu Cheng” is an important node of urban micro-renewal, the design is based on the principles of safety, versatility and fun, to create the most “childish” “charming street corner” in Kunshan. This is also a walkway from school and back around to the street, where you can hear, the sound of children reading loudly in school and the sound of laughter after school.
项目背景 Project Background
Facing the problems brought about by rapid urbanization, such as “the fading of urban cultural memory in the old city and the prominent contradiction between supply and demand of public space”, the Kunshan Municipal Government has launched the “Kun Xiaowei – Shared Lucheng” micro-renewal action plan.Guided by the concept of “together constructing, sharing, and governing”, the action plan aims to “acupuncture” the small and micro public spaces, integrate cultural elements, lead the “surface” with the “point”, improve the urban neighborhoods, and boost the city. “To beautify the urban neighborhoods, enhance the city temperature, revitalize the community, enhance the charm of the neighborhoods, highlight the cultural heritage, and promote the creation of a comprehensive model city of liveable beauty.

The project was designed by Shanghai Edging Architecture and Landscape Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Design, and is one of the demonstration projects of the “Kun Xiaowei – Share Lu Cheng” micro-renewal action plan, which is an important node of the “T” axis of the trail system of the Tinglin community in the old town area of Kunshan. With “small investment, big change”, it has attracted positive response from the local government and society, enhanced the sense of access and happiness of residents in the old city, and promoted the high standard start of the “Kun Xiaowei” action.

基地原状分析 Analysis of the previous situation of the site
The project site includes the “Dongtang Street sidewalk interface” and the “corner green space in the middle of the Park” near the Experimental Primary School in Parkview, Kunshan City, starting from the western Yuege North Street, east to Bailu Middle Road, adjacent to North Huancheng Road in the north, and connected to Dongtang Street and Zhihe Pond in the south. East Pond Street interface is 320m long, with a total design area of 3075 square meters.

The “Corner Green Area” is adjacent to a busy traffic intersection and is an important interface of Bo Lu Middle Road, which is an essential path for students to go to and from school and a waiting area for parents who pick up their children, but the original condition of the site is a lush balsam tree forest, with a messy lower ground vegetation and a lack of resting facilities; the sidewalk on Dong Tang Street near Kunshan Bo Lu Experimental Primary School is not pedestrian-friendly, and safety hazards as well as poor comfort and aesthetics of the interface are also a concern.

理念与策略Concept and Strategy
This project takes urban renewal as an opportunity to create a “charming street corner” in the old city of Kunshan with the goal of “full elements, humanization, precision and refinement”. The project team analyzed the behavioral demands of people, and concluded that the residents of the site are in need of daily recreation, as well as the students and parents who go to and from school.

The design uses “acupuncture” style micro-renewal to explore how to activate the negative urban space, how to reconcile the functional needs of the site with pedestrian traffic safety, how to build pedestrian corridors for school districts, waterfront recreation zones, and community spaces; how to preserve and organize the existing vegetation and improve the quality of green space.
策略一 : 巧理边界——打造安全便捷的上下学路、提升街道界面的美观性。
Strategy 1: Smart boundary management – create a safe and convenient way for commuting to school and improve the aesthetics of the street interface.
The corner is an important node of the “T” trail system in the Tinglin community, creating a “trolley box path” along the school wall and using the corner to create a space for parents to rest and students to move around; improving the comfort and friendliness of the community trail. At the same time, brightly colored thematic signs were added to enhance the recognizability and appearance of the streetscape.

The design takes the historical landscape of the ancient Zhitang River and Dongmen Street as the cultural base, and while satisfying the creation of functional space, integrates the vitality of the modern community with the lively and active elementary school students, and gives a light and bright color theme in the design of the site to create a stylish and open Dongmen Alleyway. The design is child-centered, with a blue “trolley path” to create a safe and convenient way for children to commute to school.
Strategy 2: “Acupuncture” intervention, Combining the function and light conditions of the site, we adopt the method of ” light transmission micro-renovation” to open up the sight line and revitalize the forest space.
策略三 : 功能复合，构筑“老幼友好型”共享空间
Strategy 3: Functional composite, constructing ” elderly and youth-friendly” shared space
（1） Space is used in separate time and area. The design fully considers the safety of the site, optimizes the functional zoning, and combines the vegetation space to “organically” separate the parking area from the children’s activity area, which ensures the safety of the activity site and also improves the landscape of the parking area.

（2）Interesting functional facilities. The design not only sets up long seats for the waiting parents, but also sets up “block terrace” and fun pavement, which evokes the parents’ childhood game memories and is also the children’s playground, promoting the interaction between adults and children and creating a harmonious and pleasant parent-child atmosphere.

Brightly colored modular seats, combined with fun paving awaken childhood game memories, allowing children to find their exclusive play space, and benches also provide adequate waiting space for parents.
