Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Center, China

Aedas recently won the design competition for a pioneering project at the Shenzhen Campus of the Cooperation Zone. The project occupies a prominent site at the heart of the Cooperation Zone. Located along the Shenzhen River, the 3,870,000 sq m Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Center includes a 3,000,000 sq m Shenzhen Campus on the northern bank and an 870,000 sq m Hong Kong Campus on the southern bank.






The tower mimics the form of the Chinese parasol tree, and assimilates into the surrounding urban texture with a coherent architectural language. Comprised of an iconic Grade-A office Tower, two high-rise residential buildings, and a shopping center podium, the 260,000 sq m complex aims to create an international business environment that is conducive to technological entrepreneurship, and a leading lifestyle center that promotes live-work balance.





As an extension of the urban green corridor, the design creates an orderly patchwork of podium roof gardens, where residents and office users can all gain access to ample leisure space. An elevated entrance, designed like a treehouse, welcomes pedestrians from surrounding developments. Scaffolded by characteristic tree-shaped columns made of silver and champagne metal aluminum plates with transparent glass, the two-story treehouse can function as a creative space, coffee shop, bookstore, and more.
