Citizen Square and Local Government Center

The design of the NDCPC (New District Citizen Square y Productivity Promotion Center) in Hangzhou Bay, in collaboration with Atelier L+ and TJUPDI Tongji Urban Planning & Design Institute, proposes a new civic space for gathering and relationship that will provide public life to this administrative complex. Through the design of the main courtyard natural ventilation and surrounding views are maximized and its various levels are connected by a unique material quality that remain, however, human-scale and welcoming.
