An old office building in Chengdu has recently been renovated into a building park with various green plants and a slide for workers inside to enjoy, offering people a new amusement place given the limited city space.
Story in detailed description:
According to a video on the thecover.cn (https://www.thecover.cn/news/9831738), located in the city center area of Chengdu, Sichuan Province, the 6-storey old building now has abundant green plants on every single floor, while office workers on each floor can choose to take the creatively-designed slide instead of stairs to go down and get out of the building. The renovation project not only aims at providing a unique and pleasant working environment for workers, but also works as a very first attempt of exploring new usage and business opportunities for old buildings, given the scarce new space and resources in big cities today.
As nowadays office workers often lack enough relaxation time and space, it is becoming increasingly vital for them to have some pleasant moments to end their work and call it a day. Both the slide and extra green plants can fulfill the ritualistic needs in terms of having fun, taking photos, and sight viewing. Future development and renovation of buildings may be based on the aim of creating even more moments of ritual for workers, such as introducing robot automations to play music and tell jokes for workers to start a day of work.
