Haimen Shishan Square (Haimen City Sports Service Complex) | Zhejiang University Urban-Rural Planning and Design Institute Co. LTD | World Design Awards 2021

Zhejiang University Urban-Rural Planning and Design Institute Co. LTD: Winner of World Design Awards 2021. In 2020, the urbanization rate of permanent resident population in China will reach 60%. How to realize the high-quality renewal of a large number of single residential functional areas in the old urban areas of traditional cities is a prominent problem that needs to be solved in architectural design.

Haimen Shishan Square is the most important urban renewal project in Haimen District, in the central core of this contrasting old city, through the design concept of “Reduce the proportion of buildings & Increase site planning”, an open “street life” building place with rich spatial levels, diverse entertainment activities and strong commercial vitality is constructed in the crowded, cluttered, dilapidated old city center, which lacks entertainment life. A sports park and a runway were built on the roof of the podium. By means of sports and leisure + culture and art + creative business, natural interaction rooted in real life is created to explore the benchmark model of old city reconstruction.

With the opening of Shishan Square, it has become the most active business center in Haimen, and its unique sports park on the roof, air track, walkway and indoor swimming and basketball hall have also become a new national fitness “Internet celebrity” venue in Haimen. The original “Old” space of the old city shows the unique charm of a new lifestyle supported by culture and combined with landscape design.
