Urban infrastructure, the underlying systems supporting the city, must be constantly serviced to keep up with turbulent shifts in socio-technical landscapes. We propose to bend the linear park into a continuous cycle, allowing the impact of the infrastructure to penetrate further into the surrounding urban fabric and thus evenly circulate cycles of energy, water, waste, information, etc. throughout the city. The seven colors of the rainbow, each distinctive in their own way, mingle in our proposal to weave an infinite spectrum of urban activity into a continuous loop. Seven cycles, each with their own function, technology and spatial language flow throughout the city of Suqian, interacting with each other and with the surrounding urban fabric.
