Beidaihe/ 2018/ 74000 m²
The project is located in an existing locust forest at the ARANYA gold coast resort in Beidaihe, Qinhuangdao. It is an outdoor playground & farm for children throughout the resort. The design proposal divides the site into two parts: a quiet meditation space in the forest and a joyful lively farm on the edge of the forest. The forest space has a simple wooden plank road and an acrylic screen that captures light and shadow, allowing people to experience the changes of light and wind in nature while walking in the forest. Inspired by the "Shan Hai Jing", the farm space has several interactive landscape elements with animal forms such as fish bone pavilion, carp bench, starfish flower field, climbing conch and five-claw octopus slide, giving the venue a unique memory point. It also allows visitors to enjoy interaction with landscape elements and learn about the knowledge of animals, plants as well as agricultural irrigation while playing.
