SWA Selected Projects

Fully integrated with architecture by SOM, this dynamic landscape diagonally traverses the campus, incorporating the unique Shanghai flora and its strong seasonality. Sculptural landforms, thick slope plantings, and cascading lake features form a dramatic, meandering landscape in the western garden. To the east, forests are traversed by passages and watercourses leading to a central pond. An adjoining wetlands provides for offsite overland flows during storms and cleanses water runoff within the site.
