A new global player
Ocean City 3.0
Location: Zhuhai, China
Client: Huafa Group
Programme: 651 ha masterplan for a mixed-use district
Hyper Pingsha – Ocean City 3.0 proposes how Pingsha New City, located at the western coast of Zhuhai, will contribute to the rise of Zhuhai into the league of globally known cities in the Pearl River Delta: Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. It focusses on three questions: how to attract and develop new industry and program; how to create an urban structure that is ecological and livable, and how to design a central area for people.
The essence is how public space creates quality and how development benefits from this quality. The public space system connects people, rather than buildings and creates an accessible river park, rather than just green infrastructure. The public space defines the three character zones: central park, urban center and beach. Mixed-use is not simply a fashionable concept but considers the difference between the locations in the masterplan.
