A design concept respectful of Hainan culture

Originally salt producers, the Hainan people have a rich history and connection with the land and sea. The coastline of the area is covered with mangroves. We analysed the site and how to protect birdlife and wetlands, proposing an ecological buffer zone. The coastline will become colourful and flood-adapted, with different site elevations to create a high-quality coastal urban form.

Five urban hubs

As the core development area of Hainan's free trade policy, it will be a modern and distinctive smart city. There will be five kinds of urban hubs: commercial, residential, research & developmental and ecological. Each hub will introduce green to the city, enhancing the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature and creating valuable public space. We have identified several core buildings including landmarks such as a Free Trade Building and an Entertainment Centre. Cultural buildings include a Community Centre and Innovation & Entrepreneurship Base.

The International Business Avenue

Following a detailed analysis of the cultural, industrial and ecological background of the Yangpu district of Hainan, we have designed a multi-layered area containing buildings of different uses, including for business and cultural innovation. We aim to create a strong, ecological, open, multi-functional, habitable and viable urban space. This area is designed to serve the development and further construction of the city; a new model of city-industry integration with high-quality public services.

Attracting international talent

The Heart of Blue Bay, located in the core area of Xinying Bay, will be a resilient and composite three-dimensional district following the unique inlet and low-lying terrain.

The International Future Community, the largest development site, contains ample amenities and pleasant open streets. The reinterpreted traditional veranda form is applied to the main street interface. The aim is to create a coastal community that will attract international talent.
