  • Year: 2016
Competition for the trasformation in an urban road of the former G107 highway, in Bao'an district (Shenzhen, China), replaced by a new motorway bypass out of the urban fabric. The territory crossed by the former highway is characterized by an extending large urban area, developed along Pearl River Harbour. It is an area characterized by important redevelopments due to its strategic importance (presence of Shenzhen International Airport and infrastructural nodes).

The former highway layout and the nearby degraded open spaces would be transformed into a green infrastructure, that connects the existing ecological corridor crossing the urban fabric between sea and mountains, creates an urban forest conceived as a social space, mitigates pollution and urban heat island, makes urban environment more resilient, according to the model of the sponge city.
