Bernard Tschumi Architects in conjunction with HHDesign + iDEA has won third prize in the international urban design masterplan competition for a new financial district (4.9 km2 / 1.9 sq miles) in the central Xiangmihu area of Shenzhen, China. The team’s scheme proposes a composed set of towers atop a podium of landscaped gardens to create a twenty-first century skyline unique to Shenzhen.

Embedded within a regular street grid, the project brings coherence and identity to a new neighborhood while tying together a very diverse context. The collection of high-rise offices, a conference and exhibition center as well as other residential and cultural programs serve to distinguish the neighborhood, proposing a new future for the city of Shenzhen.
