This project was commissioned by the Shenzhen Investment Holdings Co., Ltd., and collaborated with the Shenzhen Institute of Building Research. It mainly primes the urban design of the Technology and Ecology City in Gaoxin, Nanshan and assists in the preparation of the architectural design competition.
Facing challenges of tight construction schedule and budget yet huge floor area and quality design and construction, SCD made use of its own advantages to carry out multiple open brain storming sessions and workshops to work out the design and construction strategy as multiple layers of ground. The strategy splits the limited land into three layers that are accessible to the public to fulfill the need for user-friendly commercial space, comprehensive services and amenities, high-density development return, peaceful research and development space, exhibition and other functional requirements on the same piece of land, as well as taking into account the requirements of fast and economical construction. The highlight is a Web Garden located at 8.4m high, or the second ground level which makes it easy for people to use public transportation to get to the site and surrounding areas, reduce the traffic jam, but also combines “life ”, “ work ” and “leisure ” together. As a pilot study of ultra-high density urban development and the first social commission, the project was principally recognized by the developer, authorities, government and the professional community. The urban design concept finally served as a space control guide in the master plan to guide the architectural design competition thereafter. Currently the design scheme has been set. The project is under construction and is expected to be completed after four years.
