OPEN Metropolis

OPEN Metropolis is an urban research and design project initiated by OPEN, aiming to make our city a true "city for everyone" through a light regeneration and improvement strategy called " Voids for the Needs".

Starting from the problems and opportunities observed in the development of Beijing, a unique and typical Chinese city, over the past decade or so, OPEN has filled the city's "voids" (inactive and inefficient public space resources) with the city's "needs" (public services, cultural and sports facilities needed for a better life). 

OPEN presented eight thematic studies and conceptual proposals for representative urban spaces including public toilets/temples/fences/green belts/parks/overpasses/flyovers/bus terminals.
