We are excited to share we are part of the winning team led by OMA for Chengdu’s Future Science and Technology City Competition in China. The 4.6-square-kilometre masterplan has been envisioned as a pilot project to drive the development of the city around the new airport east of Chengdu and will include research institutes, a university, offices, retail, and housing in proximity to each other.
The Masterplan centers around the themes of innovation and implementation of various ecosystems to create a future garden city that respects the agricultural origins of the site while embracing future technologies. The proposed masterplan connects the functional clusters with garden-scapes, promoting different functional programs inside each cluster. The TOD site and other core areas of the masterplan will also host public functions, along with the development of the Futian Station to connect the future city to the new airport and the greater Chengdu.
