Konghou Fence An interactive fence used as partitions to regulate the crowed of the West Lake Fountain show in the rush hour, and improve the West LakeĘźs attraction in details.
INSPIRATION West Lake is a freshwater lake in Hangzhou, China. It is divided into five sections by three causeways. There are numerous temples, pagodas, gardens, and artificial islands within the lake. West Lake has influenced poets and painters throughout Chinese history for its natural beauty and historic relics, and it has also been among the most important sources of inspiration for Chinese garden designers. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. Target: New Product and Service to enhance love and attraction of The West Lake tourism. Attraction
RESEARCH Reasearch on phenomena of LOVE near the West Lake
Reasearch on phenomena which promise ATTRACTION on the West Lake Painpoint
Value = Attraction - Obstacle
Customer: Local government
Issue description The local government often uses a variety of methods to regulate the crowd, such as the reduction of subway stations, putting three layers to isolate the crowd of the main trunk roads, and to set up partitions at the entrance of the fountain square.
Music Fountain is approaching... Security gaurds are lining fences for dividing the crowd.
Crowds are crazy, making the safeguard mad.
The safeguard is shouting â€œPeople with bags go to the safety for checking! Others go ahead!â€?
But people are cunfused, not knowing where they are heading to beacuse the queue is way too long.
The carrying capacity of the West Lake Musical Fountain Square is 9,000, but the peak traffic of 18:00-19:00 often exceeds its maximum carrying capacity.
Fences used as partitions near the Music Fountain do not fit the poetic atmosphere of the West Lake at all, not helping with building a consistent image of scenic spot.

Cover CLEACH Focusing on the severe problem of the Marine ecology, and by combining signages and eco-bags, CLEACH provides a new way to interact with the marine litter. People follow the official account when storing their luggage, and then begin the environmental friendly trip.
INSPIRATION There are diverse species in the ocean, and a very large number of resources in these Marine systems. At present, over 20,000 species of Marine life have been recorded in China.
Marine litter can cause different degrees of damage to the Marine environment, ecology and even human health. First of all, Marine litter is scattered on the beach or floating in the sea to affect the Marine landscape. Secondly, the intake of Marine litter by Marine animals will do harm to their health and then harm the Marine ecology. At the same time, Marine litter can also pose a risk to the safety of Marine navigation.
DESK RESEARCH At present, most of the litter in the sea are food wrappers, bottle caps, straws, shopping bags, beverage bottles and cigarette ends, among which 3/4 is plastic waste.
In February 2015, a paper published in Science by scientists from the university of Georgia pointed out that about 8 million tons of plastic litter flows into the sea from land each year.
Globally, 192 coastal countries produced an estimated 275 million tons of plastic litter in 2010 alone, of which 4.8 million to 12.7 million tons ended up in the ocean.
