SHANGHAI WATERFRONT
Skyline Studies in China

Visions of the city as it might be.  
This rapidly developing area
includes the city’s northern train
station - a major hub - and is
bordered by the Suzhou river, one of
Shanghai’s great neglected
assets. This scheme seeks to
complete the district by reclaiming
its waterfront; by retaining the
vanishing small-scale com­mercial
character of its historic fabric; by
providing for a rich mix of uses; by
adding a thick layer of green and
sustainable interven­tions; by
specifying the forms and densities of
new buildings and street-scapes; and
by developing a rich texture of
public spaces.
