Zhengdong Transportation Hub

Zhengzhou, China

Design
September 2011 - January 2012
Project Area
41,570,000 square feet (3,862,000 square meters)

The ancient Chinese scroll “Along the River During Qingming Festival” inspired the design for Zhengdong’s integrated transportation hub. In the painting, a grand gateway opens to a vibrant community, much like the transportation hub will welcome visitors and residents into Zhengdong.

An important aspect of this design approach is its attention to the careful planning of buildings and streets in relation to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Reflecting current trends in new Chinese town planning, the vehicular circulation area is organized around pedestrian-friendly town blocks.

Small parks within the financial zones create special communal spaces for both the office worker and transit user. A whimsical, picturesque green space complements the civic landscape, another key feature of the development’s holistic design.
