Work has recently started on the Xinhu Hangzhou Prism mixed-use development, located at Hangzhou’s Future Tech City in the new Technology Central Business District (CBD), China. The project is being commissioned by Zhejiang Xinhu Haichuang Group and is expected to complete in 2020. 

The project, designed by Dutch architectural firm OMA, will incorporate a hotel, retail space, lofts and an atrium garden. The 50,000 sq m Prism, described as “a pinnacle reaching into the sky,” is complemented by an adjacent 35,000 sq m residential tower, reflecting the geometry of a prism in its facade, said OMA.

“Xinhu Hangzhou Prism will encourage the development of a creative community in the new CBD of Hangzhou. The design enables flexible programming and a broad repertoire of communal outdoor spaces, while maintaining a strong visual identity: striking in its form, archetypical yet contemporary,” said Chris van Duijn, partner at OMA, who leads the project together with Michalis Hadjistyllis.
