Urbana Silvam is a celebration of Shenzhen past and present. It shows the vibrancy and color of a megacity, all the while respecting the importance of pockets of wilderness and greenery in an urban space both on the horizontal and vertical plane. The ground plane takes its inspiration from the pattern of the rice paddy fields that used to be prevalent in Shenzhen. The vertical columns represent the economic growth of the city both in terms of high-rise buildings and the colors of the large port that is central to Shenzhen’s history. The garden is designed so that from certain views it looks like a city while, from other locations, it seems like a green forest due to the plantings on one side of the walls and the roofs. It is a very inviting space looking out from inside the garden.
②秘密花园 Secret Garden
The Layout of International Gardens
This garden creates a secret space to hide away from the pressures of society. Mirrors in the garden room reflect and refract, as if there are many small windows opening up this small space, turning it into a larger garden. The reflected plants give added vitality so that the whole garden is more dynamic and has a sense of depth. Fantasy and fun, this wonderful space is healing too. The flowers are in the mirror, and the dream is in the garden.
