The Revival of the Silo

THE SILO RICE TERRACES PROVIDES A MUCH NEEDED SPACE WITHIN THE REDTORY FACTORY CAMPUS AND THE CULTURAL ARTS DISTRICT, THAT ENCOURAGES A DIALOGUE AND EXCHANGE OF ART AND DESIGN BETWEEN VISITORS, STUDENTS, ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, THE LOCAL TIANHE DISTRICT, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE CITY OF GUANGZHOU.

THE EXISTING SILO, HAS BECOME AN URBAN SCULPTURE, IN WHICH VISITORS CAN EXPERIENCE IN VARIOUS WAYS. CAREFULLY ANCHORED IN THE SITE, THE CORTEN STEEL WALLS SCULPT THEIR WAY INTO THE EXISTING SILO TO CREATE A UNIQUE ENTRY SEQUENCE INTO THE AMPHITHEATER AND THEN INTO THE TERRACED LANDSCAPE FORMING A GRAND GATHERING SPACE BETWEEN THE WALLS. THERE IS A UNIQUE VISUAL AND SPATIAL DIALOGUE BETWEEN THE SILO AND THE CORTEN STEEL THROUGHOUT THE ENTRY SEQUENCE INTO THE AMPHITHEATER. HERE VISITORS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THE SILO FROM INSIDE, OUTSIDE, BELOW AND BETWEEN THE WALLS.
THE SILO TERRACES ENCOURAGES USERS TO INTERACT AND ENGAGE IN A DIALOGUE ABOUT ART AND DESIGN IN SMALL OR LARGE GROUPS. ADDITIONALLY, THE TERRACES CAN ALSO BE UTILIZED AS AN OUTDOOR AMPHITHEATER FOR INFORMAL TALKS, LECTURES OR DEMONSTRATIONS GIVEN BY ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS. THE SILO TERRACES CAN ACCOMODATE SMALL OUTDOOR CONCERTS AND PERFORMANCES FOR THE CREATIVE ARTS DISTRICT.
