Three Cultural Centers & One Book Mall in Shenzhen, China by Mecanoo

Cultural Complex Shenzen ChinaA new cultural centre lines the western edge of Longcheng Plaza in the Longgang district, one of the largest suburbs of Shenzhen. Designed to revitalise this park-like square, the complex comprises a vast bookshop, museum for art, youth centre and science centre spread over four volumes.

Cultural complex of 95,000 m2 with public art museum (13,500 m2), science museum (10,000 m2), youth centre (8,000 m2), retail (7,000 m2) and a bookshop (39,000 m2) and 31,500 m2 of underground parking and a new public square totalling 3.8 hectares. Building: 400m long, 50m wide, 25m high.

The elongated building is an urban connector, and triggers – instead of hinders – a connection between the surrounding areas. Large arched passageways between adjacent volumes correspond with pathways on the western side and with infrastructure from a new business district on the eastern side. The round forms of the copper facade support the natural flow of passers-by through the area.

By sharing the same form, height and material, the volumes unite as a visually cohesive whole without an apparent front or back facade. The fluid forms of the four volumes channel air currents in a natural way. Visitors and passers-by can shelter from the rain or sun of the local subtropical climate underneath the arches.

The entrances to the cultural centres are located at these covered squares, which allow the various interior programmes to extend outdoors. The public appeal generated by this project makes Longcheng Plaza part of a new, vibrant city centre with the cultural complex as a landmark.

    Shenzhen: City of the Future. The high-tech life of China’s Silicon Valley

    Technology and innovation hub, Shenzhen is known as China’s “silicon valley” and “the city of the future”. Once a fishing village, in just 50 years it grew into a megacity packed with skyscrapers. It hosts international technology exhibitions and forums and attracts creators and investors from around the world, contributing to its population boom. Inventors and engineers working here, create helpful robots, hybrid cars and smart car parks.

    China has a saying; to see the past, visit Beijing, to see the present, go to Shanghai but for the future, it’s Shenzhen. Shenzhen has transformed itself from a tiny fishing village to a megacity in just 50 years, its population tripling since the 1990s. The city is a magnet for tech-savvy and inventive dreamers from all across China and the world, because of them Shenzhen has become the “silicon valley” of China, a true technology and innovation hub.

    The sprawling metropolis is famed for its skyscrapers, hybrid cars, solar energy and for being home to a great many hi-tech companies. UBTECH is one of them; its focus is on making robots an indispensable part of everyday life. Its key product is the android – a human-like robot that can help out in the workplace and around the home as well as becoming both teacher and playmate for kids.

    Shenzhen municipal government encourages citizens to switch to eco-friendly, hybrid cars that use both fuel and solar energy. The vehicles are made by a local manufacturer, BYD. Public transport here is hybrid too helping maintain the city’s ecological reputation, which is among the best in China. The city’s rapid growth demands new solutions for optimising space. Shenzhen is one of the top 10 cities in the world for having the most skyscrapers. Today, its engineers are working on a solution to the ever present problem of parking by developing smart car parks that can automatically place cars in tight spaces while the driver simply walks away.
