PROPOSAL
2011

Hefei City of Youth proposes an alternative system to the repetitive urban structures that gives shape to most of the contemporary Central Business Districts.

An urban pattern is used to create a complex system of constructed and open spaces that organizes all the different functional programs and circulations, reproducing the image of a city fragment inside the plot.

The project consists on a ‘patio’ network of mixed functions that promotes human interaction and communication.

The street rises creating a residential garden and a public terrace generating a three dimensional urban structure for the users. From the main openes plaza, people go deep into the building through a net of pedestrian streets that configures the retail area, a maze of shops, flexible offices, courtyards and skylights. This ‘patio’ retail system connects the residential sky garden with the urban square.

The interaction of programs on the lower levels, together with the urban square and the residentail garden, gives the project a special sense of comunity and public identity.
