Shanghai Leisure Centre Competition 1995

31 12 2009

A previous blog page included pictures of this project that were lost in the mcbeth archive- however the amount of detail that went into the design is worth showing.

The television tower was under construction when I did this and was all hand sketched and then airbrushed by a guy called Tim > – right on the pudong side of the bund in Shanghai – it comprised cafes ,restaurants , cinemas and a curious bag store for walkers on the bund to leave their valuables in for security.

The roof was cooled by a massive water fountain which slid off the edge into a large pool by the entrance inhabited by lucky fish…… The restaurant was in fact a massive lift that could submerge under the river.

Very good fun – very  thunderbirds !
