RESEARCH ABSTRACT:

CHALLENGE:
Site existing commercial typology is lacking in variety. How to invent a new commercial typology is crucial. The CBD buildings are too closed off to be accessed by citizens which will becomes a challenge for the design... The vertical stacking of commercial programs make podium too tall. How can we encourage the customers to travel on this upward journey is a challenging question. The ‘Xinhua book store + retail space’ brings a brand new commercial typology of culture and retail as core in CBD.
