The Hamburg architectural practice was the winner in a limited open architectural competition and, in 2010, was commissioned with the design and construction of the Dayuan International Center. Chengdu has the reputation of a „green city“ and is one of the Chinese mega-cities with the best quality of life, which is also based on a culture of public life in the external urban space. The architects’ objective for the design of the building ensemble was to replicate this quality of a pulsating metropolis by offering a multi-faceted arran- gement of spaces and buildings.
