Crossboundaries was responsible for designing Kids Design Week 751 D Park Event and Exhibition in Beijing China. Completed in September 2016, the building invites the children and adults alike to have a fun and adventurous journey. This project is considered as the first Kids Designing Week Beijing exhibition where the children and adults can swap roles by indulging in available activities within the building.
Kids Design Week 751 D Park Event and Exhibition
Situated in one of the city’s former industrial parks and a hub for the creative business community, Kids Design Week is a place for an interdisciplinary communication platform, gathering educators, parents, psychologist, designers, and child industry professionals to share perspective and improve their way of thinking.
A Pure White Ribbon
Spiral-like movements from a pure white ribbon attract the visitors. What’s more, the white ribbon acts as a path leading to a series of activities, discoveries, and games at each step they are taken in the process. Once they went through the path, the visitors will see how the ribbon re-emerge, looking like a backdrop for art or even partitions for some functional areas.
Grow Down, Shrink Up
The building emphasizes ‘Grow Down, Shrink Up’ theme which is reflected in the design. This means that children and adults alike are invited to swap roles and explore available workshops, salons, art installations, and exhibitions containing varying activities and topics. The arrangement was created by Crossboundaries through a framework that connects the space and program. Meanwhile, the building also has an open space bordered by concrete columns where children and even adults can indulge in their own fantastical playscape.
