For the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai ZUS designed a park in a formal harbor area. On the bank of the Huangpu river the park has been lifted creating a stand that is elevated high above the historical docks. Underneath the park space is created for a open-air opera with floating platforms.
Industrial relics like the old cranes are maintained. The structure of the park is based on the imaginary run of the river: it seems like the pathways, benches, kiosk and seating pits are moving along with the water.
