Shenzhen Bay “Super City” 1>3 by UA Studio7

Shenzhen Bay Super City

Shenzhen Bay Super City“1” represents the whole, the unified manifestation of the separate “3’s”. By putting together 3 distinctive processes and functions, 1 stronger and efficient complex can be achieved.
Shenzhen Bay Super CityIn the design, we are trying to illustrate that we can create a unified compound, a mixed use super center, rather than a simple stacked combination of economic, ecological and cultural domains.
Shenzhen Bay Super CityAccording to the latest Shenzhen City Master Plan, the Central Shenzhen Bay region will become the most important pole in Shenzhen and Hong Kong metropolitan area.
Shenzhen Bay Super CityThe planning goal is to create in the Shenzhen Bay a world-class city center, “super headquarters base”, “major economic center”, “super regional environment” and “super city image” being the key words of the design bid. We used three design techniques to achieve our goal:
Shenzhen Bay Super City1. In order to free up as much space as possible at the street level for the public, most of the required area is organized into three super high rise towers. The towers merge together both at the upper levels through a sky bridge and in the underground.
Shenzhen Bay Super City2. The ecology efficiency of the development was increased by integrating the city park in a eco-merging system,connecting the levels by sunken galleries, rain gardens and planted floating bridges.
Shenzhen Bay Super City3. Over the analysis of its demographic and social situation, we found that Shenzhen is a typical “immigrant” city, with a high proportion of young people living and working there. With this in mind, we tried to design a new type of development, a vibrant city where various functions like working, living, culture and entertainment merge together.
