Novotown is China’s latest cultural and creative incubator, designed by Aedas as an iconic destination on Hengqin Island in Zhuhai, China. Located just five minutes from Macau, the 120,000-square meter cultural and entertainment complex aims to straddle the roles of tourist destination and local icon.

The complex, commissioned by Lai Sun Group, features a retail ring, an expansive courtyard, a shopping mall, a wedding pavilion, a healthcare center, and two indoor themed attractions: Lionsgate Entertainment World and National Geographic Ultimate Explorer. Three upper-level towers house the Hengqin Hyatt Regency Hotel, a 52,000-square meter office tower, and a cultural workshop tower.

Novotown’s core architectural gesture is an abstraction of an open palm, symbolizing both the embrace and proliferation of China’s culture. Construction is scheduled for completion in 2019.
