BEIJING | Scitech Plaza | 220m | 44 fl | Pro

Scitech Plaza

UNstudio won first prize in a competition to redesign Scitech Plaza, a shopping mall located in the centre of Beijing. The project consist of the
shopping mall and two high-rise towers, 220m and 145m tall.

UNstudio about the project:
The Scitech mixed-use redevelopment is located on a crossing point of traditional and modern developments in the Chinese city of Beijing. The
site is adjacent to the city's east-west central axis leading to the Tiananmen Square. The massing strategy for the plot focuses on creating
optimal links between the mixed-use programming of the redevelopment, whilst interweaving a dense low rise development with a high rise
component. Simultaneously, through phasing the redevelopment, the existing retail mall is integrated into the design from the outset.

In the low rise portion of the new development, a series of connected courtyards organise the different programmes around the user flows to
form an urban carpet. This provides outdoor and indoor spaces which combine programmes through internal and external links. This five to
seven storey high podium is designed as an undulating landscape that organises the traffic flows on its perimeters, whilst providing interior
green and sheltered spaces for pedestrian access.

The high rise towers emerge from the low rise development and provide singular usage for hotel and office premises. In the intersection with the
low rise podium, functions are allocated accordingly to create maximum synergy between activities in the low rise zone and the towers. The
public zones in the towers are highlighted by connected atria and voids.

The podium is primarily dedicated to retail function with 5 levels underground and 8 Levels above ground, including spa and conference facilities
located within the upper floor and roofscape. Three underground levels provide parking facilities, whilst the remaining two house a supermarket,
food court and programmatically arranged drop offs to sustain the ground level for pedestrians. These levels have visual links and vertical
circulation to the upper levels through a series of voids. The main circulation concept utilises clustered atriums instead of one central atrium.
This concept enables stretched diagonal visual and physical links as well as local aggregations of varied atmospheres.

wow. talk about thin based buildings hard to make out what the cladding is supposed to be like, but from the renders it looks great, althou the renders are really looking like they are just that, renders not a real picture of what it will look like in the end. but we will see. maybe some daylight renders can bring some light to the design. the shape certainly looks interesting

Looks like something Zaha Hadid would have designed.

I miss how there is no map of where this will be located like on all posts. It would be great if there was some standard on SSC to post a picture of where the structure is on a map relative to the whole city.

That link should lead you in the right direction.

What an exciting concept! Beijing is one of those cities that just keeps on building, and it seems as though now, in the 21st century, it's a constant exhibition of fine artwork and architectural ingenuity. Lovely!
