Creative earthquake- Central Plaza in Guangzhou
The Guangzhou city is located between River Zhu and Baiyun Mountain, the new town is at the important ecology development axes of the whole city, so it will be an important part of the central commercial core of Guangzhou in the 21st century. The task was to develop the centre plaza as the “living room” of the city and as an important node on the new town central axes.
The main objectives for the design concept of the central plaza are to create an unique landmark, to develop a wonderful underground world and to initiate a vivid 24h-activity-area in the form of a beautiful recreation park and a luxurious shoptainment area. The whole plaza is divided into diverse sequences of experiences. The five elements: metal, soil, fire, wood and water characterize the different squares and create an exciting scenery.
