Text description provided by the architects. The design of Zhangmiao Exercise Park shows our attitude towards the city. Through the self-generating energy, it shapes the form of urban space. The design is under the guidance of Landscape Urbanism. With the combination of runway, square and landscape, an ecological system is built at the corner space of the city.

The street corner was only filled and leveled up to meet the basic requirement of the citizens, but did not provide more choice of public activities to the whole area. Through the process of design, we not only consider the functional requirement, but also integrate the urban dynamic element into it.

The application of wind and solar energy provides the night lighting. The vertical grass vegetation creates different scales of spatial possibility. The corridor space combine with the publicity function, becomes a sheltering space for citizens.

The jogging path, which is paved with plastic cement, even becomes the liveliest space in the whole area for people taking rest (hanging out) at night. The democratic, civic and public property of the modern city space is fully represented in this street corner.
