Atelier Deshaus has completed another building, this time in Qingpu, Shanghai. The building is a youth centre for teenagers. Its a real shame none of the photos have people in them using the spaces – ultimately they will show if it has been a success or not.
As we understand the nature of Teenager’s Center, the whole program was divided into a serial of small individual functional spaces which was utilized by various types of open spaces such as courtyard, plaza and lane. The kids’ adventure was encouraged by the environment. We hope them experiencing what they might achieve in a small town, such as numerous possibilities of destination, wandering and meeting with unexpected. In the other word, we create a place of social interaction and human care for the teenagers.
