Home > Winners > #135986


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Chengdu NBD Centre

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Architecture

INSPIRATION:
Chengdu like other first tier cities in China is congested with vehicular traffic. During the inception of this competition, the site was still a virgin land with metro line 6 and 9 under planning stage. Here is an opportunity respond to this congestion by looking into way of reducing above ground traffic. It was imperative at the design stage to seamlessly connect to the adjacent stations resulting to a fully integrated Transport Orientated Development (TOD).

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Located close to Jiaozi Park, Guixi Ecological Park and the Jinjiang River, the Chengdu NBD Centre it is one of the first of many iconic projects in the Jiaozi Park business district and an important fulcrum of a world park like business district in Chengdu. As an extension of the park into the development, our goal was to create a new Cultural Icon for Chengdu and a place of destination with a green low carbon public realm for the city.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The NBD centre is divided into 3 distinctive sections, Below Ground, Podium and Main Towers all interconnected by pockets of public realm. The below ground retail connects the underground connections and metro lines into the development. A large sunken civic plaza draws visitors to the ground level where multi-level linkages take visitors to retail and cultural attraction within the podium levels. The main towers are designed house various types of digital media and cultural offices, digital art gallery and exhibition centres.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Location: Chengdu, Sichuan Province China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Together with world class environmental consultant Atelier 10, we devised a breathing façade to maximize natural ventilation for most of the year as well as exploring way to achieve PRC 3 Star Green Building. With grey water collection and multi-level green roof system. Apart from being a fully breathing façade, we explored ways of creating developable surfaces to minimise curve glazing and an elegant way to integrate media LED into the façade.
