The design for the Qingdao Master Plan, designed by HAO/Holm Architecture Office + Archiland, seeks to further develop and expand the existing elements of the city. Situated within the city of Qingdao and conveniently located five minutes from the airport, the site is divided into three main areas. To take advantage of this, the design takes its starting point around a sunken cultural path that leads visitors through the entire programmatic experience of the new master plan.
