Project's Summary

Nanjing World Trade Center, a project designed by Mix StudioWorks architectural studio, is set to play a prominent role in the development of Hexi, the new central business district (CBD) of Nanjing, China. The original master plan and towers, created by others, faced challenges due to the division of two parcels with a shared street between them. In order to address this issue, Mix StudioWorks was brought on board to enhance the connectivity between the project's parcels, towers, the adjacent sunken plaza, and the broader Hexi context.

The main focus of Mix StudioWorks was to establish a more natural and seamless connection between the different components of the Nanjing World Trade Center project. This involved creating a design that would facilitate the movement of pedestrians and encourage a lateral flow, which is vital for optimizing the vitality of the retail spaces within the development. By carefully considering the horizontal expression and spatial choreography of the podium, Mix StudioWorks aimed to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for visitors and shoppers.

The Nanjing World Trade Center project is an integral part of the larger Hexi district, which is being developed as a bustling hub of commerce, culture, and leisure. The goal of the project is not only to create an attractive and functional space for businesses and visitors but also to contribute to the overall transformation and growth of the area. With its strategic location and thoughtful design, the Nanjing World Trade Center is expected to become a key landmark in Hexi, serving as an anchor for the new CBD.

Scheduled to open in 2015, the Nanjing World Trade Center project is eagerly anticipated by both local residents and international observers. It represents a significant step forward in the development of Hexi and is poised to make a lasting impact on the skyline and urban fabric of Nanjing. With Mix StudioWorks at the helm, the project promises to deliver a seamlessly connected and vibrant space that will attract visitors, businesses, and residents alike.
