Chapman Taylor's design concept for Qilong Innovation Park in Chengdu, China

Chapman Taylor has created a design concept for a new industrial, cultural and creative centre, Qilong Innovation Park, in the Chinese city of Chengdu.

Qilong Innovation Park is located on the south side of Chengdu in Chengdu Hi-tech Zone, where the green landscapes of Qilong Park and Langan Weir Branch Canal meet.

The plot is located on the city’s east-west Chuangzhi Development Axis, with the Dayuan Core and Gazelle Valley Industrial Centre to the north and Tianfu Software Park to the east. In addition, Metro Lines 5 and 20 cross here, forming a strategically important public transportation intersection.

Our design for Qilong Innovation Park is inspired by all of these interweaving characteristics, architecturally reflecting the symbiotic relationship between them.

The urban cultural and creative park design draws on characteristics of both Chengdu and Japanese culture, forming an integrated development of rail interchange stations and an urban service core. We are also collaborating on the design of cultural and creative innovation facilities within an organically growing urban and ecological landscape.

The design concept interweaves the development within the wider urban texture, providing a fitting architectural landmark at the intersection of some of the city’s key new economic, cultural, developmental and ecological zones.
