Shenzhen Cloud City,
Developed for an international competition, the mission here was to create a welcoming, undulating, public eco‐system, in which all the functions of daily life are supported and enhanced. As a new ecologically-planned city in Shenzhen, it would embody both virtual and tangible connectivity to create a place to work, live, and thrive, where vibrant, new urban lifestyles, as well as social, cultural, and business opportunities are very much encouraged.
Harmony with earth, sea and sky
Connecting people and ideas from across the globe through advanced technological integration, “Cloud City”, a project developed for an international competition, incorporates the highest quality virtual connectivity within a structurally dynamic, diverse, and experientially rich physical environment.
Incorporating natural elements within a fully integrated public realm, “Cloud City” invites the world to live and work together efficiently and in harmony with earth, sea, and sky.
The art of living
Distinctive multi‐use structures rise with the dramatic and graceful arcs of a Chinese mountain landscape, creating a stunning canvas for the art of living. Intertwined and interconnected, these technologically advanced structures ingeniously coexist, shelter, and support the organic, natural, human‐scaled settings planned at the ground plain.
A central eco park supports enhances and activates the residential, business, social, artistic, and cultural life at the heart of the city.
A shining paradigm for urban living
The Shenzhen “Cloud City” masterplan weaves its urban fabric with natural elements, connecting the mountainous hinterlands to the north with the magnificent Hau Hoi Bay to the south.
As observed from the sea, the new “Cloud City” rises from its natural context like a beacon, creating a shining new paradigm for urban living where super-tall structures open up and shelter large expanses of public green space.
