Shenxi New Town - Shenxi (China)

Master plan competition (Beijing)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


Shenxi New Town is supposed to develop as China’s medicine and pharmaceutical capital. The task of this  
urban design cometition was to develop the future city center of Shenxi's administrative and business district.
The nature - home to herbal plants - provides the reason for a design im plementation based on a growth
alongside the mutual respect of natural and artificial features.

The integration of natural elements give an opportunity to keep the urban fabric balanced so that the gradual increase of building heights, starting with the riverbank parks and a series of low density cultural buildings, guarantees that all the buildings benefit from a strict south exposure being in either visual or
physical connection to the green. The urban structure culminates in the circularly shaped administrative center, dominated by the governmental tower.
