        It is a story: in the guise of a ribbon, the narrative falls into place. It develops around a river, evoking Pudong’s identity and sense of place. The river’s role is restored, with its ability to soothe, to make us dream, to take us on a journey. While the city changes, the water continues to flow, ever serene. The ribbon unfurls between the urban frenzy and the serenity of the river banks. A transitional space, a porous through-way, it embodies that precious and inextricable link between nature and construct. Elegant and benevolent, it invites us to follow its familiar yet surprising course. We feel its presence as a reassurance, we enjoy slipping away to stroll along it, stopping to take it in, crossing over it. A colonnade, a singular, dynamic object which gives this business district an opportunity to re-connect with its urban character. In this vertical district, where the Oriental Pearl Tower reaches skyward, it introduces a horizontality which focuses on innovation and usage. The street returns to life, the scale of time and space plays with temporality, diversity and audiences. For the Sensual City Studio, history is made step by step, along a series of projects and encounters. Shanghai fascinates and intrigues us. It invites us to re-think ‘otherness’: going beyond oneself, this incredible complexity becomes a creative driver to ‘make’ the city. Alchemy is at work, mixing together a unique sense of freedom, exploration and adaptability. The strength of the project is, without a doubt, linked to the need to build trust between the people driving it forward. Because building a city is a quintessentially human ambition.
