Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationCloud Citizen, a proposal for a new high-rise typology by Urban Future Organization and CR-Design, in collaboration with a team of experts at Chalmers Technical University, has won the Shenzhen Bay Super City Masterplan Competition with a futuristic proposal for a green, hyper dense, three dimensional city in the Shenzhen Bay area across from Hong Kong.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationCloud Citizen is as much a strategy for how to build future cities capable of giving back more to the environment than they cost, as it is a singular iconographic mega building complex with an identifiable and striking skyline giving character and hope to the vision of a greener future enabled by human enterprise.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationThe competition brief asked for a new 170 ha financial city district including three high-rise structures, several cultural buildings as well as a landscape connecting the new district to the surrounding city.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationThe proposed design should be a new iconic financial district for Shenzhen making the city part of the league of cities including La Defence Paris, Canary Wharf London, ECB Frankfurt Area and the Presnensky District in Moscow.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationThe new interconnected district acts as the next step in the development of the Shenzhen Bay Ring area from a production oriented city to a modern service oriented, high-tech, innovative green city.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationThe design offers a spatially and programmatically diverse alternative to prevalent high rise monocultures. The proposal consists instead of one connected mega structure creating a third dimension of the city reaching 680 meters into the sky.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationCloud Citizen is a continuous metropolis with programmed public space suspended in the air comprising both office space for an envisioned IT industry cluster, commercial, leisure and cultural space. Each suspended public space creates a profound identity and acts as a catalyst for  surrounding small and big businesses inspired by the bustling Hutong lifestyle.
Cloud Citizen by Urban Future OrganizationCloud Citizen is an integral part of the urban ecosystem, it  harvests rainwater, it produces power from the sun, wind and algaes, it stores carbon and filters particles from the air, it provides sanctuaries for wild plants and food production modules and in sheltered locations of the structure skyparks are providing the cloud citizens with closer proximity to nature, leisure and healthier lifestyles which is a dream of a new Chinese generation.
