Global practice 10 DESIGN had the winning scheme for the Jinwan Aviation City Research and Development Center in Zhuhai, China. Located on a prominent, waterfront site in the Jinwan Aviation District, the 55,000m2 campus will serve as an incubation platform for start-up companies and entrepreneurs, providing support, resources, and networking opportunities for young businesses.
“Creating opportunities for interaction, collaboration, and visibility is an important objective of our master plan,” 10 DESIGN writes.
“The simple layout of the master plan provides a clear planning diagram reminiscent of the ancient Chinese character for flight. The new Industrial Service Center will be a unique development that is rational in design, commercially flexible, cost effective and a good environment [for the] incubation of new business in the Jinwan Aviation District.”
Inspired by the concept of a flowing stream, their scheme features a green landscaped garden at the center of the site, which will be the social heart of the campus.
“Each of the Incubation Office buildings has a direct face to the social heart of the campus. Rather than create large, center core office buildings, we have created smaller linked modules to allow for greater market flexibility, more natural daylight into the office space and shared atriums to sponsor interaction. Each of the Incubation Office Buildings was designed as paired blocks with a central atrium.”
Construction is currently expected to be complete by 2019.
