Competition | Spring 2014
Client: SZ Design Center | Shenzhen, China
Size: 420 Acres
The Shengzhen Bay Supercity competition brief required a new 170-hectare financial district for the city, including three high-rise structures, cultural buildings, and a large green space to connect the district to the surrounding city. The hope for the masterplan is to create a new iconic financial district for Shenzhen.
Blooming City proposes a 160-story megastructure, broken into several programs to a create variety of spaces to to serve public, commercial, residential, and cultural programs. Sitting on an urban retail landscape, the roof becomes a green network that integrates ecological principles, transportation hubs, and public life.
There were three design teams that participated in this submission: Tower, Transportation Hub, and Urban Design / Planning. I was a part of the Urban/Design Planning team and served as a liaison between the three teams.
