Paris,Lisbon and Shanghai-based practices Jacques Ferrier Architecture and SensualCity Studio have turned what could have been an ordinary ‘office plus car park’into an opportunity to radically reassess the surrounding urban district of Xujiahui in Shanghai. The resulting structure, on the site of a former hotel, combines office, civic, commercial and cultural space with green ribbons of public walkways, connecting the streets and buildings of China’s busiest intersection with peaceful arteries from which to escape the tumult. The design explored ways in which the project could become a generous catalyst for the wider environment, building pedestrian connections, walkways and bridges above the transport interchange as anextension of the building; in doing so, renewing the local infrastructure. Throughextensive analysis, Jacques Ferrier, founder of Jacques Ferrier Architecture,and Pauline Marchetti, co-founder of Sensual City Studio, identified the needfor enhanced pedestrian connectivity at the intersection and incorporated this into the building’s car park. The radical intervention creates raised and planted walkways which lift pedestrians sevenmetres above the crossroads to provide more logical and enjoyable connectivity between citylandmarks such as the church and the park. The project includes two levels of commercial space underground, one of which is connected to the Metro City building by an underground gallery. Floors 1 and 2house several hundred square meters of community spaces. Floors 3 to 4house the public car park, which unfolds in the form of a continuous spiral,serving the offices and businesses of the district. The 6th and 7th floors areshared office space arranged around a large raised garden, and house areception for visitors, cafeteria, meeting rooms, auditorium and spaces forrelaxation and conviviality. Levels 8 to 12 have been developed as efficientand user-friendly office floors. The top two floors are home to the culturalcentre, space that seemingly “floats” on the skyline of the district. As a piece of architecture, T20 expresses the movementand dynamism inherent in the site: its circulation and activation through humanuse, across the bridges that connect to the city and at ground and first floorlevel where public facalities and shopts are located. The car park becomes a lush urban oasis for the city, with the insertionof an extraordinary “hanging garden” that is visible from key public spaces.
