Shanghai Zhangjiang Innopark landscape project in progress
In 2016, the Municipality of Shanghai launched a urban revitalisation framework and announced the Zhiangjinag Innovative Park Revitalisation Strategy, aiming for a ultimate urban transformation and landscape upgrade in Zhangjiang Hi-Teach Park. In fall 2016, West 8 has been appointed to design the first revitalisation area which will focus on the Northwest district, the earliest developed district of Zhangjiang Hi-Teach Park.
With collaboration between municipality and private land owners, this proposal aims to create a multi-functional urban areas with diverse structures of different cultures and lifestyles, to catalyse an energetic ‘dense street networks and open neighbourhood’ for improving the living qualities of this demonstrative area.
After the conceptual design stage, West 8 has been appointed for the further development of the proposed urban design upgrade strategy. This design development has been presented to the clients and was positively perceived. West 8’s Zhangjiang Northwest District Urban Design Upgrade Stragegy has become a demonstrative project for the redevelopment of the rest of the Zhangjiang Innovative District. West 8 continues our commitment to the project development with Zhangjiang Innopark, a landscape sub-project derieved from this master plan that is currently being developed.
