Throughout rapidly urbanizing Asia, cities are being built, sometimes at high densities, before a coherent plan for access to green space, amenities and transportation option. In Shenzhen, perhaps the most extreme case of this phenomenon, tightly-packed neighborhoods were thrown up practically overnight to accommodate an influx of migrant workers. Some of these areas, only a few decades old, are already targeted for redevelopment. At such junctures, there is great opportunity to integrate rational order and “breathing room” into districts already pulsing with life.

Taking place at C FutureCity, a new multi-tower complex under construction in Shenzhen’s Shangsha district, near the mangroves along the shore of Shenzhen Bay, this program addressed the complex role of tall building projects inserted into existing, dense neighborhoods.
