Not in galleries, but a way of seeing
The Jin Qiao government recognised the beauty of this disused spiral car ramp and engaged BAU to consider whether it could be kept and for what purpose it might serve. It is situated opposite a planned exhibition centre and adjacent to an industrial compound undergoing gentrification as a creative industry site.
BAUs proposal converts the ramp into a restaurant-bar-café but keeps the cars circulating down the ramp under the restaurant to a basement car park. In order to keep the ramp pure and open a new detached building is designed to house the kitchen. A café is designed for the ground floor of the new building to provide the street corner with activity.
