With a scheme of twelve staggering skyscrapers, an elevated pedestrian network and a beautiful green urban park, Mecanoo architecten gives the Shenzhen North Station business district a distinct character. The main buildings of the business district are set around a central urban park and vary in height between 278 and 428 metres. By situating the transportation nodes on the subterranean levels, the public park appears as an open green space, something the area currently lacks.
The design team greatly benefit using BIM as a design and communication tool. This total urban design with the towers and all surroundings where create in Revit using simple floor slabs walls, masses and adaptive facade systems. and scripts to populate the landscape and sites with foliage.
