The complex will cover an area of approximately 560,000 square metres and feature towers and waterways which mimic mountains and meandering rivers, which are an essential part of Chinese aesthetic philosophy.
The high-rise structures, located at the edge of the site, are characterised by vertical shading fins and permeable glass screens composed in a visually flowing form, reminiscent of waterfalls. This enclosure system creates interior spaces with plentiful light and ventilation, producing a subtle and calming environment.
Additionally, ponds, waterfalls, brooks, and pools connect the buildings with the landscape both visually and functionally, serving to collect and recycle rainwater.
The site is composed of six zones, two of which are linked by a vertical public plaza. Curving pathways weave through the commercial complexes, which provide access from the busy ground level to the elevated park, where citizens can wander between buildings and gardens.
A village-like community of low buildings is situated at the centre of the site. Footbridges provide circulation throughout this zone, and are complemented by artificial hills and flowing water, creating an intimate experience at the heart of the project.
Clean construction materials, such as concrete, help to further create a sense of simplicity.
The master plan, which is currently under construction, is scheduled for completion in 2017.
