Whole Process Design of the Shenzhen New Cultural Center (Originally Known As Shenzhen New Mass Art Center) is now open for pre-qualification application. Design teams are welcomed to participate in this competition.
With the background of "building a global and regional cultural center city" and "building a pilot demonstration area for socialism with Chinese characteristics", Shenzhen has raised its development strategy for public cultural services to a new height and issued a series of policy documents, including Shenzhen Cultural Innovation Development 2020 (Implementation Plan), striving to build public cultural service facilities that are compatible with modern, international, and innovative cities and international technological and industrial innovation centers.

The existing Shenzhen Cultural Center was built back in 1980. Its facilities have seriously aged in that time and cannot meet the requirements for developing current public cultural services. To meet the increasingly diverse citizen needs for public cultural services, the municipal government plans to build a new municipal cultural center to further improve the city's public cultural service level and enhance the quality of the city's public cultural service.
