Education district, Xixian
Inbo was involved with firms Tekton and Eusino in the development of the Satellite City Xixian North East of Xi’an. The project consists of the design of a University Campus that will also function as the new heart of an international district. The project was commissioned by the Xixian development corporation. The assignment was executed in close collaboration with Tong Ji urban planning and design institute.
The project was designed around an old riverbed that will be brought back to life as a new river. The public heart of the river town will be the new campus and campus park. The proposed campus plan consists of three urban atmospheres; (1) the river boards, (2) the campus park and (3) the urban street. The campus will serve 6.000 students and will be surrounded by approx. 20.000 townhouses, apartments and amenities. The campus buildings will form a family of individual contemporary architectures. The University program gradually mixes into the surrounding neighborhoods consisting of high end community development. The connection between the campus and its surroundings is emphasized by a number of pedestrian bridges.
