Mecanoo Breaks Ground on Multifunctional Cultural Center in Shenzhen
Winner of a design competition, the Shenzhen cultural center consists of four top-heavy volumes each clad in a reflective, red-tinted facade. A series of sheltered public spaces, which were created from the voids between the contiguous buildings, create wide pedestrian corridors that link Longgang District’s urban core to the green spaces in Longcheng Park. The open interstitial spaces will connect with the new 9-acre Longcheng Plaza.
