Origin of the River Plaza is the core landscape area in CIFI Plaza, a retail mall designed to bring the nature of the adjacent forest park into its multi-layered architecture. The plaza acts as the window facing the city and connects with nature while attracting visitors. The paving pattern of the entire site converges from three directions towards the main entrance. One of the geometries of the paving pattern blends in with the footbridge crossing the sunken plaza. The undulating wall of the footbridge creates an eye-catching “landform”. The landscape treatments create memorable experiences.
