Urban Design and Master Plan for Nansha Bay Area

Guangzhou, Guangdong, China

Nansha Bay is an estuary on the south side of Guangzhou. Belonging to the Nansha free trade zone, it is a key link node connecting the massive urban agglomeration in the Pearl River delta region. This Urban Design aims at creating a new spatial order and urban corridors within the existing urban context to enhance the livability and overall image of the Nansha district. The most challenging part of the project is to balance different interests of developers, owners, government agencies and local people due to the complex status of the land ownership in the planning area. A small dynamic organization in Hong Kong not only jointly owns the land with Nansha government but also has been deeply involved in the business operations in this area during the past two decades.
