Laibin is a modern city in the South China experiencing rapid growth. The loss of public space and cultural identity are two main problems must be addressed by us. This project aims to: Create a vital public place for citizens; Promote public wellbeing through design for physical activities. We employed design ideas rooted in local culture and promote cultural identity. We created a place to collect rainwater and showcase the local plant species.
