Designpraxis CROX designed a conceptual vertical park for San Jose, California. The landmark, known as the San Jose Ring, takes on a circular shape inspired by architect Lin Congran’s idea of ​​unity and historical continuity. As the team outlined, the project aims to reconnect people and nature with a large loop and emphasize the connection through a combination of sculpture, architecture and park area.

Congran and CROX stated that “San Jose wanted to establish a new image in the new century,” and the design hopes to symbolize a fresh start in the city. With close ties to Silicon Valley, the project was conceived as a public work of art and community space to observe the city and enjoy nature in the vertical park. The project is based on ideas of “unity of the world, ecology and global integration” with regard to the future of city parks and land use.

With a futuristic vision, the team wanted to redesign the structure of the city with different elements. The design examined the components of forests, lakes, boulders, deserts, and plains and included several mixed functions. The program mixes aspects of public and communal space such as sports fields, theaters, libraries, restaurants, visitor centers, exhibition halls and the like. Congran notes that “the plan represents a renewal of the city, overcoming regional restrictions and becoming a symbol of global trust.”
