MVRDV has begun construction on Shenzhen Terraces, a mixed-use project that forms thecore of the thriving university neighbourhood in Shenzhen’s Longgang District. Designed with sustainability as a focus, the project’s green outdoor spaces mix together with a wide variety of activities – including retail, a theatre, a library, a museum, and a conference centre – to make the site a hub of leisure, culture, and relaxation. The horizontal terraces provide a valuable contrast to the high-rise towers all around, but they also perform an ecological function: overhangs provide shade and the round shape promotes wind flow and natural ventilation. The abundance of greenery, pedestrian paths and water features make the project one of the more sustainable in Shenzhen.
Combining a pedestrian-friendly landscape with no less than 20 different programmes including public transport, Shenzhen Terraces is poised to become a sustainable hub for the surrounding area. The abundant planting and water features reduce the local temperature and provide habitat for urban wildlife, while gardens and rainwater collection generate food and water resources.
The edges of the terraces dip at strategic points to form connections between the various floors and to double as small outdoor auditoriums. In other places, the facades are pushed inwards to emphasize entrances and create recognizable places within the scheme to help visitors orient themselves. The centre of the largest building, on the east of the site, is carved out to form an open-air atrium. In the buildings on the western side of the site, a new library concept defines the complex: rather than a separate entity, the library acts as the glue, divided over two buildings and connecting related educational programmes such as a Youth Activity Centre and a Youth Entrepreneurship Centre. Outside, bridges connect the buildings to turn the second floor into a continuous route and connect Shenzhen Terraces with surrounding developments.
An important ambition for the project was to merge the building with the landscape and make the project as sustainable as possible. The landscaping, developed in collaboration with Openfabric, adds patches of greenery and public programming between pedestrian routes. These patches host planting that imitates the sub-tropical natural forests of the region, mixed alongside features such as grassy hills, public art, reflective pools, and activity zones for climbing or table tennis. The roofs are also part of this landscape, used not only for photovoltaic panels and rainwater collection but also large, accessible green lawns.
“In cities like Shenzhen, it is essential to think carefully about how public space and the natural landscape can be integrated into a dense city”, says MVRDV founding partner Winy Maas. “Shenzhen Terraces can be seen as a three-dimensional park that makes it possible for students to walk outside to their lectures in the warm weather instead of being locked in air-conditioned spaces. In this project we are not working against the climate, but with the climate. The naturally ventilated terraces, protected from the sun by overhangs, will soon become fantastic hangout spots for people to meet and study.”
