Located in the southern coastal area of Shenzhen OCT, Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base is one of core areas of the Tanglang Mountain-OCT- Shenzhen Bay urban functional axis. It adjoins Shenzhen Bay on the south, overlooking Hong Kong across the sea, the inner lake wetland of OCT on the north, Sand River Golf Course on the west, and OCT Happy Harbor on the east. On the south of the base lies the major east-west expressway Bin Hai Da Dao (planned as a sunken section at Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base) and future underground passage of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Riverside Expressway, and it is also adjacent to Shenzhen Bay Port (Shenzhen-Hong Kong Land Port) and Shenzhen Bay Bridge. Urban metro Line 2, 9 and 11 (airport express line) intersect here, with planned stations for Guangzhou–Dongguan–Shenzhen, Shenzhen-Dongguan intercity railway and metro Line 29, making it an area in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) with unique natural landscape, prominent image as urban gateway and high value of integrated urban development in the future.
To realize the goal of developing the GBA into a compelling world-class megalopolis, by implementing high-quality, high-standard planning, design, construction and management as required by the municipal Party committee and the municipal government and establishing an integrated mechanism of planning, construction and management featuring coordinated efforts and strong momentum for better decision-making, leadership and management, Shenzhen municipal government has officially set up Shenzhen Bay Super Base Construction Headquarters Office for overall coordination, with headquarters office to handle daily affairs. Meanwhile, a chief architect system is also tried out in planning, design and construction, with Academician Meng Jianmin invited as the chief architect of Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base to strengthen whole-process design quality control and planning management for the entire project, and give overall technical guidance to this international consultation.
As the construction of Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base speeds up, the conflict between human and nature become increasingly prominent against the intensified development. Therefore, the following problems should be addressed in the district planning: 1. How to retain Shenzhen’s urban characteristics based on mountain and sea in the context of high-density built environment; 2. how to coordinate peripheral ecological environment with the high-density urban environment; 3. how to embed natural resources into the city memory; 4. how to smoothly connect the Project district to public recreational spaces and pedestrian circulations of the urban area; 5. how to create diversified and distinctive functional spaces that are user-friendly, comfortable, interesting and static-dynamic balanced in the highly-compounded multi-level public space that can accommodate diversified activities; 6. how to showcase the distinctive features of the Project’s location, climate and ecological environment.
In response to the above demands, with people-oriented design philosophy, it is required to detail the landscape and public space system within the established framework of urban design and comprehensive transportation for unique coastal landscapes, top-class cultural landscapes and citizen spaces of coastal city, a gateway image as “the world metropolis ” and a benchmark of in-depth integration between green ecology and state-of-the-art technology.
III. Design Scope
The scope of the overall landscape design of this international consultation covers an area of about 146 ha, including: site property line scope of Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base of 117ha, which is defined by Bin Hai Da Dao, Shen Wan Yi Lu, Shen Wan Wu Lu, Bai Shi San Dao and Bai Shi Lu; area of 29ha beyond the site defined by southward extension of Shen Wan Yi Lu and Shen Wan Wu Lu to Shenzhen Bay Park.
