Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled the design of the Guangzhou Infinitus Plaza, 67,000 square meter complex, in Baiyun New Town, Guangzhou, China. The project cost is expected to reach 4.5 billion RMB (approximately $659 million USD). Construction is slated for completion in Spring 2020.
The amazing complex will consist of two building footprints, connected in the air through twin green-roofed skybridges to create a vertical campus for LKK Health Products Group (LKKHPG) and the Infinitus health products brand. Within the complex, different departments and program pieces, including a new global center for R&D, a Chinese herbal medicine research and safety assessment center, an exhibition center and a gallery, have been arranged around four central atria and courtyards to encourage interaction between employees. On the roof, walking and jogging paths weave between gardens of Chinese herbal plants, providing a place of respite for employees.
Guangzhou Infinitus Plaza is planned to become a new gateway into the new Baiyun Central Business District, which will include 6 communities developed surrounding the former Baiyun Airport. Running between the two building footprints is Line 2 of the Guangzhou’s Metro, ensuring the site will be connected to the rest of the city.
