stripes of color animate leisure and play


taking advantage of the arch-shaped rooftop, the design team at 100architects utilized parallel stripes of color, forming a rainbow. each of the lines represented in a different color acts as a platform hosting specific functions and features that encourage social interactions through leisure and play. those stripes initially executed as 2D floor graphics for circulation, in certain moments become 3D shapes forming urban furniture, play structures, and objects for leisure.


the whole system of stripes becomes 3-dimensional, elevating from the ground level in order to create a social amphitheater with sweeping views opening towards the xiang river. furthermore, vertical walls with geometrical shapes and patterns quickly grab the attention of visitors, becoming trendy selfie spots for social media sharing. the social amphitheater is crowned with a pop-up logo of ‘I ♡ 长沙’, as the main recognizable and distinctive IP image of the rooftop.100architects invites you over the rainbow 5
