Recently, a tiered lawn in Shanghai has become popular with office workers who use their lunch breaks to take a nap on the grass. As part of a landscaping project undertaken seven years ago in the city’s business district, the lawn features a 110-degree incline that is ergonomically designed to provide a level of comfort similar to a reclining chair. It offers an oasis of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of city life.
