T.R.O.P: terrains +open space & 魏玛景观：这个项目让我们看到了在多方、多专业的配合下“设计带来的美感”。美不是体现在某一个画面上的，“立体、复合、交错、层叠”适用于硬景设计，也适用于软景设计。商业空间重现了自然带给人的情感体验，颠覆了传统的大片硬质化的商业街区形式，以自然式混合种植的方式营造了一个沉浸式的森林绿谷商业体验空间。这是一次大胆的尝试，我们期待在时间的塑造下，她能彰显出更美妙的力量。
T.R.O.P: terrains +open space & Weimar Group：We really see the “beauty in design” with the cooperation of multiple parties and multiple disciplines in Yanlord Arcadia. Beauty is not manifested in a certain way. “Three-dimensional, composite, staggered, and layered” is suitable for hard scene design as well as soft scene design. The commercial space reproduces the emotional experience brought by nature, subverts the traditional large-scale rigid commercial block form, and creates an immersive forest green valley commercial experience space by means of natural mixed planting. We hope the bold attempt can show more wonderful power under the shaping of time.
从2019年12开始参与建筑讨论，到2020年4月正式开始景观概念构思，在5个月的前期参与过程中， TROP始终保持积极的态度站在景观角度适时提出建议， 经与后期深化单位魏玛的合作以及与各专业施工方的不断磨合、反复调整，方案最终落地呈现。
Participated in architectural discussions from December 2019, and officially started the concept of landscape conception in April 2020. During the 5-month early participation process, TROP always maintained a positive attitude and made timely suggestions from the perspective of landscape. After working with the later deepening design unit Weimar and the continuous running-in and repeated adjustment with various professional construction parties, the plan was finally presented.

传统商业模式的突破 Breakthrough in traditional business models
Numerous traditional commercial projects only provide space for merchants, and they often abandon suitable outdoor space because of the “blocking” by landscape design or plant construction. However, in the new era, the traditional and straightforward business model is no longer suitable. With the change of media, the ways of obtaining information sources have become diversified, and the consumption pattern has also changed. People will go to the online celebrity shop to check in and consume, attractiveness, reputation and IP effects have become the key of business. The purposeful consumption of the customer group is already greater than the traditional random consumption. Therefore, it is necessary for commercial projects to guide the logic of business operations through rational design, and it is necessary to give priority to creating places suitable for people’s activities to attract people to come and stay, and then convert them into commercial value.
都市感的“绿谷”社区商业 Urban sense of “Green Valley” community business
The owner hopes to connect the Jiangpu Park on the south side and the riverside green belt on the east side to create an “urban green valley”, forming a green space for strolling that is beneficial to the city, and at the same time, combined with business, it can drive the vitality of the entire riverside area. Therefore, TROP regards the overall commercial landscape construction of the project as the commercial IP, hoping to create an open three-dimensional green community commercial block with a unique sense of space scale in Shanghai.
However, the greening of traditional commercial space is basically supported by arbor canopy, and it is difficult to achieve the effect of “urban green valley” only with a little dotted greening scattered on the ground. The designer hopes to seek another aesthetic innovation, adopting a multi-layered three-dimensional greening layout to meet the large-scale greening impression from multiple angles. Inspired by the architecture, they decompose the large space plates, take the split-level and sheet-like processing methods to plan the space to achieve a sense of Shanghai Lane scale. In addition, the landscape design language is extracted from the architecture, so that the landscape and the architecture are integrated to create a “three-dimensional forest” under the general concept of “urban green valley”, so that the space has a sense of scene and active business atmosphere.

自然式混合种植的审美法则 Aesthetic principles of natural mixed planting
In the Yanlord Arcadia,the overall plant design breaks through the conventional plant clusters and formal style planting, boldly tries the innovative way of natural mixed planting, which raises the plant creation to the height of “horticulture”. The designers pay more attention to the overall mood of the plants rather than the display of design skills, and also pay more attention to the stable ecological cycle of plant population relationship. Following the law of competition in nature, the plants are allowed to grow freely, to infiltrate, to intermingle, and finally to reach a harmonious and natural state of growth, to convey the beauty of plant life changes, and to let people face and accept the beauty of nature.

TROP与魏玛的再次联手 Trop and Weimar teamed up again
If TROP is the dream weaver and dream maker of the landscape, then Weimar is the party who finally realizes the dream. They turned the pre-conceived ideas and drawings of the landscape into reality and bringing the “Urban Green Valley” into the public view.
“Only when people recognize the ability of plants to create space will they feel the value and meaning of their true existence.” It is precisely the attention and persistence of TROP and Weimar that the creation of plants has been elevated to a certain height in this project. To a certain extent, it has become one of the “main themes” of landscape construction in the project. There is more space for plants to be refined like paving. It is the mutual tolerance and achievements of the two parties, coupled with the concerted efforts of many parties, that finally completed this landmark project, which is touchable, appreciable, rewarding and playable, and also made Yanlord Arcadia a focus of industry discussion.

是商业体验，也是社区生活体验 Business & Community lifestyle Experience
Landscape architect continues the layered appearance of buildings to the site piece by piece at a humanized scale, making it a reduced version of the landscape elements, and these layered and extended elements further derive various beautiful and chic leisure spaces.
Initially, the fire escape was simple and straight through the site, and the cold hard pavement separated the greenery on both sides. This kind of space lacks artistic conception and interest. On the premise of meeting the fire control requirements, TROP adjusts the passages into curves, so that the greenery is arranged in a staggered manner, making people have the feeling of green forest no matter which angle they stand, and also creating three-dimensional greenery by “raising the green volume” to create the effect of space wrapped in greenery.
▽消防通道摇身变为游憩性景观游廊 The fire escape turns into a recreational landscape veranda
In terms of plant design, Weimar insists on choosing the right and suitable plants to create a space and appreciate the beauty of the plants themselves. In the “forest” area, every tree is full of the designer’s painstaking efforts, and the plant placement, volume, shape and even the inclination angle of each tree and the best viewing surface have been carefully considered. The designer create the artistic conception of plant space with extraordinary and delicate thinking and emotional investment. While pursuing the ultimate details, they also reflect the professional attitude and the pure heart of love.

With a small number of plant species and simple colors, it reflects the unique beauty of plant vitality, and successfully highlights the temperament of “ancient forest”. After careful design, the height of the lower greenery does not exceed 1.5 meters, and the naturalistic planting method is adopted, using only seven plant species of rosemary, hibiscus chrysanthemum, panax sedum, blue fir, snake whip chrysanthemum and tortoise shell holly ball. In the same scene at least 3 kinds of plant varieties that can be viewed in different seasons in different configurations, to meet the seasonal dynamic viewing effect, while conveying the beauty of the changing seasons of plants. All the trees on the upper floor are 2.5-3 meters in branch point and 8-10 meters in height, reproducing the atmosphere of old trees with gnarled branches. so that the dense plant canopy can be seen in the garden on the third floor, forming a visual sense of integration with the outside greenery, and also leaving the peripheral business sight.

The completed platform is wrapped in greenery, presenting a strong visual impact between delicate and nature. The elevated platform also serves as an interesting and ingenious viewing point, as if sitting in the forest, you can feel the nature around and enjoy the street scenery and pedestrians walking in the site through the forest.

In the natural atmosphere, you can feel the soft side of your heart changing with the sunshine and breeze, which also reflects a combination of rationality and sensibility.
Some people doubt that the creation of too natural and wild plants is contrary to the delicacy and tonality of commercial projects, but in fact, the design team insists on balancing the too “wild” natural soft scenes with exquisite hard scenes, and has been emphasizing the contrast brought by delicacy and extensive, and enhancing the sense of commercial quality through the processing of details.

Many commercial Spaces, parks or exhibition areas are decorated with sculptural pieces, and the client initially wanted to place an interactive IP in a prime position at the entrance. But TROP insists on presenting a classic in the form of a landscape that fits more closely with the site space, rather than adding a stiff IP image. The overlapping landscape scene space formed by the extension of the building in the project can itself become a “sculpture”, just like the reduced version of the project, which can become its own IP and is more classic and unique.

The designers wanted the waterscape to extend all the way to the core of the project entrance, making the layered and circulating water an art installation. To create a three-dimensional art work in a staggered way, with the focus of sight on all sides. In order to continue the texture of the original lane, both sides of the entrance are deliberately narrowed to form the street life space of old Shanghai. Under the green decoration, it is full of memorable life atmosphere.

The TROP team designed a multi-functional rooftop garden on the second floor, which is a relatively private area that will only be used inside the community in the future, and it connect the future community supporting Spaces such as gym, book bar, community property, etc. A variety of leisure Spaces are set up in the garden, such as outdoor reading area, viewing platform, rest booth area and reserved small square, which can meet the owners’ imagination of holding small activities in the bookstore, such as reading sharing meeting and book promotion.

The bar seating area on the second floor in the water is the feature and highlight of the project. It also includes two main design details: the railings originally set up for safety are decorated with special light strips, which can remind intoxicated people to avoid accidental falling into the water; The three rotatable dining tables under the special light strips can meet the functions of outdoor dining and partying.

Good design is the greatest respect to the design to achieve good landing, and only the more adequate and detailed the preliminary work, the later will be faster and better landing. The responsibilities of the program designer do not stop at the completion of the drawings, but also need to make multiple presentations and continue to follow up the project during the construction process. According to the nodes in the construction organization plan to “step on the spot”, increase the number of on-site guidance and inspection, measurement, verification of all the reserved data, and maintain timely communication and coordination with the responsible parties, with a professional and responsible attitude to make up for the errors in the construction process.
The building, curtain wall and landscape in this project are all designed in a standardized layout with a modulus of 1.2 meters. The design dimensions of pavement and platform are all multiples of 1.2 meters or half of 0.6 meters, but the overall modularity is very affected by the slope of the site. construction errors, cross-construction of various professions and other realistic factors, it is hard to achieve, so the use of segmented modular construction can reduce the difference in visual.

In addition, due to various reasons such as building height and indoor layout restrictions, only 280 mm of covering soil was left for the roof garden after reporting the regulations, including waterproof layer and thermal insulation layer, which made it impossible to plant plants at all. Except for the water bar that is directly connected to the interior, other outdoor landscape areas have been raised as a whole. On both sides of the platform, TROP achieves the depth of planting by slightly uplifting the soil to form hills, and planting with trees. The point is the center to form an undulating overlying planting layer. The soil-covering problem of the entire roof garden was solved by partially piling up soil and planting plants in flower boxes, and at the same time, a cantilevered viewing platform was created, where you can look at the green “natural oxygen bar” Jiangpu Park, and what is more interesting is that you can see the To the Oriental Pearl and the “Shanghai Three Piece”.

Combined with the construction of the roof garden, the overall three-dimensional greening of the project visually allows the greenery of Jiangpu Park to penetrate into the project, creating a sense of borderless integration of the two site.

The plant design of the rooftop community garden is different from the plant creation on the ground, no longer pursuing to create a relatively stable plant framework base with a few simple plants, but more focused on color matching, highlighting the color combination of the flower border. A richer variety of plant species is used to simulate natural mixed planting, and a large number of flowering plants are used on the skeleton of ornamental grasses, and the colors and textures of the plants present a harmonious contrasting visual effect, which is like a kind of “pictorial planting” with the fusion of horticultural techniques and artistic sense.
The flowering plants mainly use white and blue, selecting blue flowering plants such as lily of the valley, German iris, big father jade hairpin, goblin pupil hydrangea, ocean heart gentian, panda violet, etc.supplemented by elegant white flowering plants such as jade hairpin and hibiscus chrysanthemum to create a serene and elegant immersive atmosphere, together with the contrasting color of yellow, just like a small surprise in the quiet flower sea.
▽主色调植物 Main tone plants
Natural planting has a stable ecological cycle effect, which is achieved through complex community relationships. As a plant designer, how can we better realize “mixed planting” to achieve “natural planting”? What is the basis of plant species selection and matching? From the design point of view, the most crucial thing is “not to design plants you do not know”, which requires designers to have a wealth of professional knowledge and a lot of time and energy to study for a long time, in order to fully understand the ecological habits of plants and achieve a reasonable combination of plants.
Miscanthus graminearum with good erectness and strong resistance can create a good landscape; hibiscus chrysanthemum can open pale yellow flowers in winter from December; Hydrangea blooms from July to September, Rosemary is evergreen all the year round and Sedum with small yellow flowers in summer… The natural mixed planting method makes the garden worth visiting at every time of year, and these plants are configured together to form a very complete ornamental timeline.
▽四季可观赏的植物 Ornamental plants in four seasons
Respecting the ecological habits and community development relationship of plants can achieve certain ecological benefits. Try to control the highly invasive plants so as not to cause subversive damage, let the plants grow in a certain area, can slowly disperse and invade in all directions, presenting a state of coexistence of different plants in nature.
Perhaps some people think that the withering of plants in winter will lead to”no landscape” outdoors and it also confuses people in the city. However, seasonal changes and the cyclical changes of plant life will present the thrilling beauty of nature, which can drive people’s inner joy changes. Even the landscape is created, it is part of the urban landscape and will grow, wither and flourish naturally, following the cycle of seasons. We should face up to the true nature and try to accept and appreciate the beauty of plants withered and withered.
