L&A GROUP: In the autumn of 2016, the 32nd Tangshan World Horticultural Expo successfully concluded its run at Nanhu Park. As the main venue, Nanhu Park welcomed visitors from all over the country, showcasing the beautiful blend of city life and the nature. After the Expo ended, the city returned to its usual pace, Nanhu Park slowly lost the attention it had garnered during the event.
In recent years, amidst the city’s bustling urban renewal, Nanhu Park is back in the public eye. What scene comes to mind when you think of an autumn afternoon?
初识场地 The Existed Site
The project is situated 160 meters southwest from the Taohuatan Gate within Nanhu Park. Before the renovation, wutong trees (Chinese parasol trees) lined the area alongside a wooden corridor structure.
We aimed to create an interactive “fluttering ribbon” (an art installation system with amusement functions) beneath the wutong trees to connect the whole tree area. Using a vibrant bright yellow hue symbolizing sunlight and warmth, we sought to contrast this with the park’s grey pavement and the distinct seasonal changes of the wutong trees, creating a striking visual effect.

▽吸引了各年龄段的人们前来，探索适合自己的独特玩法。It draws people of all ages to explore and discover their own ways to engage.
▽谁会拒绝鲜活有趣、灵动轻盈又老少咸宜的优质活动场地呢？Who could resist such a lively, enjoyable, and versatile activity space suitable for everyone?
对话梧桐 Conversing with Wutong
We aimed to create a space for direct or indirect engagement with the wutong trees, bridging the gap between urban life and the nature. Through our design, the “fluttering ribbon” and wutong trees seamlessly interact, harmonizing in both color and form without any abruptness.

The sunlight filtering through the wutong leaves creates a dynamic play of light and shadow. Elderly people gather here, reminiscing with siblings, as memories from their youth gradually come into focus in the warm sunlight. Adults find solace, relieving desk work fatigue and rejuvenating their bodies.
Young parents capture every wonderful moment of their children’s growth, while the cute brave kids are busy enjoying this amazing world!
夜色飞扬 The Elegant Nightfall
At dusk, Wutong Sqaure is bathed in a river of light.
As night falls, the site gradually dims, and the lights begin sketching the contours of the entire space. The “ribbon” takes on a graceful new form, gently “fluttering” in the air.
The square at night exudes a warm, delicate ambiance, distinct from the daytime, creating a serene atmosphere. The bustling corridors of the day transition to a tranquil, gentle setting.

The subtle urban renewal has created new spaces, providing unique experiences. Simultaneously, human activities breathe new life into the renewed site – comfortable designs always bring more joy. Through landscape design, our aim was to share the city’s warmth and joy with more people.
设计师说 Designer’s View
During the on-site construction and installation assembly, the designer oversaw the entire process from factory to the site, collaborating closely with construction workers to refine design details.
Installation: Most parts of the installation, being large and irregular in shape, required segmented factory processing and on-site assembly. The “yellow fluttering ribbon” mainly operates overhead, demanding careful coordination to avoid conflicts with wutong branches, significantly heightening assembly complexity. However, through everyone’s unremitting efforts, we ensured both overall effect of the installation and its harmonious coexistence with the wutong trees.
▽施工过程 Construction process
Timeframe: The construction complexity also significantly increased due to the project’s tight deadline and concurrent installing and assembling work on both corridor structure and all other landscape furniture below it. Through extensive coordination, we managed to synchronize various construction tasks and ensure completion within the designated timeframe.
Details: In response to human needs, we included designated areas for baby stroller parking and ergonomic seating with appropriate height and spacing. Prioritizing site safety, we continuously improved the corridor structure to ensure safety without compromising the overall design. We also installed friendly reminder signs on the installations to keep visitors constantly aware of safety precautions.
We hope you will occasionally recall, the warm afternoons you spent here amidst the hustle of daily life; We hope the bright yellow “fluttering ribbon” forever reside deep within your memories.
