Project Description


Around the globe there is a shift occurring in the spatial organization of innovation. Innovative companies and talented workers are choosing cities and urbanism over the outdated model of isolated suburban campuses. This new model — the Innovation District — is an ecosystem, a network of individuals and organizations working together as a system. These districts cluster educational institutions and innovative firms; linking them with start-up companies, business incubators, mixed-use housing, office, retail and 21st century urban amenities. This new innovation district, fueled by the ‘river’, will be a financial ecosystem creating a diverse, resilient cycle of environment and enterprise, culture and commerce. By leveraging the strong educational contingent in Changchun, the Tsinghua Financial District will become one of the first cutting-edge Innovation Districts in China.

Jury quote: "A powerful master plan beautifully articulated and executed.  This project would become a catalyst for investigation into the reinvention of the traditional urban planning grid while proposing formal stylistic approaches for new architectural forms and articulation."
