The 800SHOW Creative Park designed by logon is located in Shanghai, China. Market research revealed that a leisure cluster could compliment the event hall, and the event hall could compliment the office space, giving it a multifunction use with positive socio-economic impact on this megacity, maximising usage of the space throughout the day and night, weekdays and weekends.
In light of the dynamic growth and fast pace of Shanghai’s Jing’ An district, the need for an emblematic building was identified: a ‘place with face’ and a place for leisure and rest, a ‘place with pause’. Based on this, the 800 Show main building was boldly dragged out to the street, remodelled with a majestic glass façade – clearly representative of the site.
The north facing villas will serve as public places for exhibitions, galleries or dining venues. Finally, the complex at the south will become a home to various creative industry offices, proudly boasting high beams, raw materials and other stimulating remnants of the previous factory structure.
