NANNING‘S NEW CENTRAL SQUARE
For Xiangsi Lake District the southern square represents an identity generating point: While the entire planning orbits around it, the square itself must be able to reach out to the surrounding and connect. The gradual transformation of the Chinese character „Zhong“ - „the middle“ - according to the spacial conditions of the site helps to find a shape able to correspond to this necessity. The resulting star square constitutes an urban platform of communication. In its radical mix of architecture, landscape and traffic the design reflects the new era which Nanning is beginning with Xiangsi New District, and renders the square a true landmark in its own right.
