Horizon & Atomesphere Landscape: During 2013 – 2022, the 4-square-kilometer of the Pulo Ideal Land has gradually implemented the territory of dreamy community. Located in the center of connected-line between Zhengzhou and Kaifeng, the Pulo Ideal Land has transformed from a dilapidated farmland into a mini immigrant city which integrated life, education, and medical care together, along with abundant community life and beautiful natural environment.
The national highway was sunk and transformed into a tunnel, giving way to an 88,000-square-meter Central Park, which could provide space for football activities, children’s land and water entertainment facilities, lakeside western restaurants and so on. The heavily polluted irrigation canal and flood drainage ditch changed into two ecologically beautiful and full-featured river. The two-kilometer-long ecological corridor connects these two rivers, forming an ecological interweaving with blue-and-green belts, which provides a foundation for ecological sustainable development.

With the successive completion of the construction of West District, more and more people are staying in the community. Through the development and upgrading of East District, our team hopes to enhance the diversity, convenience, specificity, and enjoyment of business. We want to integrate the “little things of life” into the community daily routine, and create a commercial system of life and neighborhood that can generate and continue the “Ideal Life Memory”. Therefore, the east and west sides of Central Park are opened, and the two 15-meter driveways are turned into pedestrian blocks. Using the hinterland on both sides of Central Park, we create various styles of living business, and gradually construct the vibrant commercial district in Central Park.

1、普罗市集：播撒记忆的种子 Pulo Ideal Park Market: create amazing memories
Under the premise of above planning, the Pulo Ideal Park Market has become the Neighborhood Vitality Business Version 2.0, symbolizing a new era of community vitality in the Pulo Ideal Land. In order to present a more complete and comprehensive effect, the architecture, landscape, interior design and operation teams have been tightly bound together from the early stage of planning. They have injected different components of energy into the market to help completing this multi-interface, mini-size but beautiful project. On the other hand, they also created an atmosphere model for the Yiwen East Street, a vibrant neighborhood commercial block.
We attempted to solve the “little things of life” from the perspective of landscape, and finally focused on “creating an environment that can form memories”. People often don’t remember the specific time, but they can remember the taste of food, the scene, and the smell they felt at a certain time. This kind of point-like, fragmented memory is often unforgotten after many years and gradually becomes a part of the self-personality. We hope that such scattered but profound memories can be born in the Pulo Ideal Park Market. With unconventional methods, we get rid of performance-style design and nodes, and let the space return to the feeling of “people” itself, and furthermore making it a carrier of daily life and collective memory.

2、去边界化：融合万物的自然 De-boundary: integrate everything in nature
In view of the positioning of the “seed” and “model” of the Pulo Ideal Park Market, although it is an independent land, it is bound to blend with the surrounding environment. After clarifying the position of it in the project planning, creating a reasonable, organic symbiosis and co-prosperity environment has become a problem-solving idea for the landscape. In the Pulo Ideal Land community, the integration of nature and public space can be seen everywhere, with businesses in the park and restaurants located by the lake.

The integrated design concept connects the professional design expression of architecture, landscape and interior design. No matter the tangible land boundary or the intangible professional boundary, they are all melted and blended in Pulo Ideal Park Market, which become a natural integration.
The market ought to be initiated by nature, and the colors from the park should permeate and blend, so as to integrate the nature of all things and eliminate the majesty of the building, and furthermore creating a humanistic beauty above nature. Therefore, the landscape reorganizes the arrangement of trees along the street, so that the Chinese parasol trees are disconnected at the market section. Besides we used more detailed and penetrating Ginkgo trees to form a visual connection with the park. It seems that a touch of yellow in the park squeezes out a passage in the reddish brown along the street, laying out this same golden market.

The market building is divided into parts, so that the space has a suitable openness for both inside and outside. Large area of light-transmitting glasses are used to let nature into the room. Through the planning of the indoor circulation, people can focus on the various interesting “things” of the market. Wandering and enjoying things at the same time, which gives people a chance to experience the “hustle and bustle” atmosphere of “gan ji”. The landscape uses ground materials to separate the outer street from the inner street. We deliberately compress the connection between the inner and outer streets, and at the same time widen the distance between trees at the main entrance to create the atmosphere of the entrance.
In the other three interfaces of the market, we continued the forest-like atmosphere of the park. Plantings spread beyond the site, so as to construct the depth of field view where the plants are scattered. We aim to get rid of the influence of the construction site, and create a natural and immersive experience of the moment.

3、退而成境 因借成景 Retreat to create an environment, and form the scene through borrowing
The basic environment of the Market is not superior in landscape.
The limited hinterland and the intertwined moving lines make it difficult for green plants to form a forest. However, it is urgent to strive for the hard space to weaken the rigidity of the building and pavement, so that visitors can enjoy it from all angles.
Therefore, retreating and borrowing scenery have become the two most important design methods in the Market landscape design process.
Under the principle of “fitness and appropriateness”, “retreating” is not inaction, but the best strategy to deal with the characteristics of the Market project. We do not rush forward, but pursue for the actual use of people and leave places for the display of store and a comfortable activity area. We highlight the beauty of architectural wood structures to achieve the transparency of indoor and outdoor spaces. Moreover, we also arrange appropriate viewing points, and decorate plants with floral techniques to make the overall space integrated.
The intervention of the landscape should be an imperceptible, natural, but just right existence. The boundary between indoor and outdoor gradually melts away, replaced by an indescribable “beauty of realm” that is indistinguishable from each other.
Borrowing scenery refers to the focus and application of internal and external connections.
“As far as the eye can see, the vulgar ignores it, and the good one accepts it.” Watch beyond the landscape land, we take the surrounding environment and the indoor environment in the area into consideration. We also make good use of those are helpful, and shield those that are not suitable. Jumping out of the present, we let Zhengzhou’s distinct four seasons to tell, so that the passing time can precipitate here, and the view would bloom, shade, and fragrant at different time in the Market, which would become an index of collective memory.

4、有呼吸感的商业 Breathing business
People grow in city, but more in a society. Where there is breathing and communication, there is emotional connection and interaction. The popularity of the term “breathing sense” reflects people’s yearning for the authenticity of life and emotional connection. The demand is even greater under the epidemic situation recently. A “breathing business” makes people feel enough respect that we are not an anonymous user trapped in an information cocoon, not a target customer group that locked with big data, but a living and unique person.
By creating a non-standard commercial space, we hope that the Market and the trees in the landscape can both breathe freely. The inner street is fully paved with gravel. This material, which is not conducive to fast walking, is in contrast to the regular and artificial pavement of the outer street, bringing out a warmer handmade atmosphere. It is not easy to walk fast, so simply slowing down and grinding against the edges and corners of the stones just become an opportunity to break the fast city life. The next time people visit, they will deliberately choose soft-soled and comfortable shoes. The visual picture of the per capita sneakers has also become an opportunity for the Market space to gain a more leisurely appeal. The ecological advantages of gravel, such as water permeability and porosity, also correspond to the continuous raining in garden of Utopia.

The lighting design also inherits the aesthetics of retreating, that we weaken the landscape lights and emphasize the beauty of shadows. “Beauty does not lie in the object, but in the depth and extent of the shadows created by the combination of the objects.” Let the building stand out, with the golden color of the logs against the dark blue curtain of the sky. The landscape only assists with a small number of lights at specific angles to pull out the layers of tree canopy, reflecting the unique dark green texture, which is difficult for people to distinguish the inside and outside under the perspective picture of the architectural glass.
In commercial projects, the comprehensive coordination of various majors is very important.
The commercial landscape needs to be a connector that assist to coordinate different majors. We use the natural scene of flowers and plants to reconcile and tidy up the environment, and finally dilute and fade the scene, and deliver the venue to the people who use it.
Although Puluo Market is mini-sized, it has appropriately evolved a non-standard neighborhood business with the joint efforts of all teams. It not only carries the beautiful daily life of the community, but also has the continuous vitality of the urban destination, providing community residents and city visitors with healing, fresh and intact collective memories of urban life.
