The Emerald Riverside project in Shanghai's Pudong district is an oasis within a bustling urban landscape that celebrates the Forest, The Garden and the Sky. The project primarily consists of residential towers, with high-end retail frontage on the eastern edge of the site. OLIN creates a multi-layered landscape both in the design of the streetscape as well as within the confines of the residential development. Residents and visitors move through landscape thresholds, each with a unique visual and horticultural character related to "Forest-Garden-Sky."
The streetscape design is a series of thresholds intended to shield pedestrians both physically and visually from the street as well as give them intimate garden spaces to occupy opposite major retail entrances. Within the residential zone of the project, occupants enjoy an incredibly rich series of layered landscapes. The classical language of the building architecture shapes the vocabulary of materials and sequence of spaces in the landscape, though OLIN infuses contemporary touches throughout the design to cater to the expectations of modern residents.
