Caohejing Xinzhou Plaza

In the Chinese metropolis Shanghai, another project for the Shanghai Caohejing Hi-Tech Park Development Corp. has been completed to a design by von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects (gmp). Influenced by the specific conditions of the place, the dynamic of the passing traffic, the crisscrossing pathways and visual relationships, the building symbolically contributes to the urban development of this originally industrial part of the city. Xinzhou Plaza has been conceived as a prismatic glass volume bearing on monumental pilotis—a building with an experimental character that makes its architectural mark.
