[Shenzhen Bay Technology and Ecology City] Shenzhen Bay Technology and Ecology City—An Example of High-Density Development





Commissioned by the Shenzhen Investment Holdings Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Center for Design developed the master plan for Shenzhen Bay Technology and Ecology City (b-TEC) in collaboration with Shenzhen Instutite of Building Research Co., Ltd. (IBR). After case studies and public workshop discussions, Design Center finally adopted the strategy of Multiple Ground City (MGC), which consists of three-ground public and semi-public spaces including Streets and Squares Ground, Web Garden Ground, and Hanging-Garden Ground. Limited by high density, the design tried to create as many pleasant spaces and green areas as possible. The MGC concept finally served as a space control guide in the master plan to direct the following architectural design competition.
