This gateway envisions a living link between the city’s boundary with mainland China that embraces both pedestrians and vehicles. The landmark structure gracefully spans the Shenzhen river increasing accessibility by organizing modes of traffic. Serving as a controlled boundary point, the sweeping raised form softens the appearance of necessary functions including ground level truck parking.
Effortlessly lifted off the ground, the entrance invites pedestrian travelers to a series of escalators. once inside, visitors may promptly cross the river or venture into the bridge’s upper levels. A green roof composed of a series of terraces is reminiscent of the predominant south china landscape while still complimenting the surrounding urban architecture. Vehicular traffic is diverted along the perimeter of the building allowing an unobstructed view of the city and water.
