Masterplan for a new high density district on the former steel work area of Houtan, with an overall area of 41 hectars, characterized by a functional mix and addressed to an international community, with facilities of excellence related to innovation and research.
Landscape project, designed by PAN Associati, includes a linear park with a system of forest dunes which envelops the whole new district, composing a hilly natural landscape which stands out as a peculiar basement for the high-rise district. A system of pavilions under the dunes, integrated in the nature, hosts facilities for sport and leisure, making the park rich of social and relationa activities. Green bridges, real hanging forest, connect the squares of the district with the main urban nodes of the surrounding context. A panoramic "yellow hill" (characterized by vegetation with yellow flowering and foliage), with a surprising butterfly biosphere above, points out the district on Huangpu river.
