For more than half a century, Sjanghaipark has been a green refuge among the modern templates of its surrounding district of Overvecht. Situated on the periphery of the Dutch city of Utrecht, the park’s identity has been constantly reshaped over time. Local residents and artists together formulated this unusual principle as a framework for spontaneity, in both function and natural elements, at a time when climate-friendly approaches were not yet a matter of public policy. This publication sheds light on the diverse aspects of the park, from art historical to ecological and philosophical, while making clear its extraordinary significance in the broader dialogue on green urban spaces.
