The Lilanz Creative Centre is destined to be an iconic hub of creativity, where visions for sustainable living and successful business, in China, coalesce into one. A multicultural cross-border design team developed a mixed-use masterplan with auditoriums, retail spaces, residential and workplace complexes that fuse European and Asian concepts. There are 8 buildings in total, which wil be the new living and working spaces for around 35,000 people.

Soaring diamond shaped glass curtain walls and steel canopies reach for the sky, while enveloping the entire complex in a ‘Las Rambles’ style boulevard. The massive glass boulevard roof is inspired by the pleating cut and folding techniques of fashion, which are to be made from intelligent glass, with solid aluminium pleating. The overall materials used are very simple, mostly glass, steel and concrete, embracing those below, instilling a sense of calmness to this microcosm of energy.

This elegant balance captures the spirit and heart of this ambitious development, reflecting a design philosophy of simple, elegant solutions, generating environments that respond to both material and spiritual needs. Completion is estimated for 2013.
