ARC Magazine Features OVI At Meixi Urban Helix Project
ARC Lighting in Architecture Magazine features the work of OVI at the Meixi Urban Helix project. The project in Changsha, China is a unique lighting project with beautiful blends of natural and man-made elements.
Merging the natural elements of water with the urban development, the Meixi Urban Helix is a beautiful new structure, uniting the two worlds of nature and man-made constructions.
Located in the southwest of Changsha, China, this new urban axis, designed by German architects KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten, is a multi-functional public space where visitors can enjoy panoramic views of Lake Meixi, as well as the planned city expansion that it overlooks.
The structure ascends above a man-made plateau on the lake, spiralling to a height of 34 metres through an exposed ramp measuring six to eight metres wide. The interior of the helix provides visitors with a reversing path ramp leading from the structure’s highest point down to the new urban area.
