MVRDV designs "urban living room" with stacked plateaus for Shenzhen

Dutch architecture studio MVRDV's mixed-use Shenzhen Terraces development will be built at the Shimao ShenKong International Centre in Shenzhen.
The development will contain a conference centre, bus terminal and theatre in organic-shaped buildings around curved landscaped outdoor spaces.

MVRDV designed Shenzhen Terraces' irregularly shaped low-rises to contrast with the vertical skyscrapers surrounding the development.
The buildings' irregular shapes will be built surrounding a number of outdoor public spaces. At strategic points, the terraces will dip to connect different floors to create small, outdoor atriums.

All of the buildings will be connected at the second floor, which will function as a bridging element.
In the largest building, which will be home to a conference centre as well as a bus terminal, a large open-air atrium will be carved out in the centre.
A small gallery, library and outdoor theatre will also be housed in Shenzhen Terraces, which will be made using recycled concrete as the aggregate.

The development in Universiade New Town, Longgang District will be the centrepiece of the university neighbourhood.
The plan is for the development to become a sustainable hub for the area, with extensive portions of the rooftops covered in photovoltaic panels and green lawns, and roof terraces with large overhangs providing shade.

Plants and water basins function as a climate buffer to the interiors, and will also be a prominent part of the design on ground level ...
