Shigeru Ban, Pritzker Prize-winner, and Ole Scheeren, RIBA silver medalist, were appointed for the Hangzhou Wangjiang New Town master plan. Creating new art and cultural destination in the historical city, the project in collaboration with New World Development and K11 Group seeks to build a landmark that meets the needs of the new generation. Inspired by the concept that shaped K11 MUSEA in Hong Kong, a global cultural-retail destination, the new master plan in Hangzhou will enhance the city’s local community, introducing creativity and ingenuity. The partnership between both Shigeru Ban and Ole Scheeren will create a rich juxtaposition for the site. In fact, Shigeru Ban is known for his innovative structures, minimizing waste and building with humble materials while Ole Scheeren’s “form follows fiction” led him to design the China Central Television (CCTV) headquarters; the Bangkok’s Mahanakhon tower; and the Interlace in Singapore.
