About Hangzhou Civic Center 5

The essential core of Hangzhou Civic Center’s architecture is a human scale-oriented garden which is open to the public, surrounded by a tight ring of high rises. Inspired by the imagery of the neighboring mountains, the cluster will become part of the unique urban topology and be recognizable from all viewpoints within the city.

The complex uses a mega-block structure composed of six high-rise and four podium buildings. It is located on the city axis with the West Lake to north and Qiantang River to south. The high-rises are connected by 85 meter-high bridges. This mega-project delivers 580,000 sqm of floor area and accommodates complex and changeable functions, including administrative and commercial offices, conference center, public library, youth activity center, exposition hall, civic service center, and ancillary facilities such as restaurants, gymnasiums, supermarkets and parking lots. These elements are connected on the basement floor by an eight-meter wide corridor, which also leads to the Metro and neighboring blocks.
