The new project, conceived in partnership with AREP and Shanghai-based ECADI, is located in the Zhangjiang Innovation Park, situated about 21 km from Pudong. Imagined as a sort of « digital fortress », the complex includes roughly 12,500 m2 of data server rooms, with these spaces forming the foundation upon which rest other programmatic zones, such as offices, customer service centers, restaurants, and conference centers.


Explains d’Ascia : « The idea was to give a certain solidity to the image of the bank ; we wanted the center to reflect the strength of the financial institution housed within its walls. »

The project’s conclusion comes on the heels of the studio’s recent data processing center for the Shanghai Futures Exchange. Both projects came about as the result of winning competition bids and continue the studio’s forary into highly-technical buildings for the digital age. « I truly believe this sort of building, the data center, is the future. Every company will need one, » notes d’Ascia.
