Folding Corner Garden, The 11th Yangzhou International Garden Expo

This design explores the spatial pattern of folds: how the grids generating by site's endowment can extend from two-dimensional to three-dimensional space within the same logical system. Through a series of processes such as squeezing, pulling and twisting, the site is finally shaped into an upper, middle and lower corner space in the form of bridge, walkways and inner courtyards.

The uplifting space generated by folds makes the garden more organic. And the winding walkways in the midst of the garden creates a unique landscape experience. The bridge is paved with mirror stainless steel which makes it possible to see the overall garden at the same time. The side walkways are connected to the bridge directly, forming a space that is different in height. When people are in it, different visual angles increase the mystery of space.
