Based on Hangzhou's profound landscape culture, the natural ecological endowment of South Lake and the unique characteristics of scientific research groups, U.P.SPACE clarifies the spatial and aesthetic connotation of Alibaba's South Lake Park project, which is "Shen Jun Shu Lang, Zhuo Er Bu Qun", and takes "a floating leaf, a harmony life between humankind and nature" as the design concept. The design concept realizes the integration of intelligent office R&D area and ecological area, while establishing the circle of life between artificial environment and natural landscape, creating an emotional work that reflects the interplay between Hangzhou city and nature.
