Science and Technology City
Frontier Science and Technology City is a project searching for Chongqing’s opportunities and new visions. Located at a strategic location close to the international airport, the new central business district (CBD) and the new International exhibition center, this project aims to restore Chongqing’s image as a ‘Shanshui City’ by creating a balanced urban environment where mountains, rivers and city co-exist in harmony. The potential of existing values are the base for the design. Not the for China so commonly practiced ‘tabula rasa’ approach and a focus on the site itself, but valuable synergies with the surrounding developments and landscape are the starting point.The framework identifies these p otential qualities, optimizes and brings hierarchy to the network, empowers a vibrant and prosperous business community and last but not least, enhances the distinctive landscape features the site has to offer. By doing this, it also promotes a balanced lifestyle with efficient working life and relaxing leisure. Frontier Science and Technology City, combination of modern and tradition, efficiency and health, urban environment and nature, is the prosperous city of tomorrow for Chongqing.
