Corten Steel Plank, Curved Steel Cladding

This corten steel curved cladding is fabricated upon the design of a Chinese artist, installed in Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden in 2009. It is conceptual to the Ideal State of secluded charm in ancient China. This 68 meters (223ft) long facade is made with corten steel for the exterior surface, known as weathering steel with good resistance to rust, fitting in the watery environment, and Q355 carbon steel for interior structure. It possesses the value of both functionality and ornament. The facade is sinuous through the mountain and lake with shadow in water which makes it perfectly integrated with the surroundings, the mountains, plants, waterfalls, adding wonderfulness a lot to viewing. And the section down the mountain brings an experience of thrills but no danger. The whole facade is seemingly a natural fit in the garden where visitors can get various senses of attractions of biology, history and luxury, etc. 


With honour, the corten steel curved cladding won award from BALI National Landscape in 2011 and award from American Society of Landscape Architects in 2012.
