Prolific Chinese architects Archi-Union have revealed their new project – the Songjiang Art Campus in the new suburb of Shanghai. Tasked with creating a new urban space and creative hub close to the local university, the architects had to develop a cultural hub, away from the overdeveloping in the rest of the city. Having seen a ‘creative vacuum’ in the city, Archi-Union focussed on pedestrians, green parks and a close relationship with the neighbourhood.

Green parks weave their way through the development, and bring in the local river. This mix of architecture and landscape was the starting point for the designers. The buildings had to be finished on a tight budget, so use of local brick is evident throughout. They expose this brickwork throughout.
