Wondering what will Shanghai be in the future? here we got the the concept FLIP/CITY, a new urban identity for Shanghai as a model for the development of future cities. The architects behind this magnificent futuristic urban planning are Design team members Nico Schlapps and Fabian Busse of PinkCloud.dk, an architecture collective firm founded in Copenhagen by four international designers using architecture as a catalyst for social development. FLIP/CITY is designed to accommodate the needs of modern Shanghai, its economy, social structures and ecological plans for the future while embracing Shanghai’s rich history and its citizens.
The FLIP/CITY offers the new type of spaces in Shanghai which designed vertically from the ground. it aimed to answer the Shanghai’s problem which is the the high population density, heavy pollution, rapid growth, and decreasing viable land. By literally expressing distinct functions for its citizens, FLIP/CITY relates strongly to the human scale while simultaneously increasing density and green space at the urban scale. via
