The new arts and cultural quarter is a world-class destination that “re-urbanizes” the empty spaces in between the pavilions of the former Expo site. The pavilions are solitary monuments in search of a City, and need to be re-integrated into an urban fabric of streets and squares. A new neighborhood is created by organizing a series of urban spaces arranged along a pedestrian street that leads from Zongshan road to the river. Each of the spaces has a distinct character, offering a wide range of experiences and the tree-lined square accommodates a variety of commercial activities, cafes, and an outdoor market. The new buildings integrate the existing pavilions by reinterpreting their formerly isolated position into a more contextual, urban role.
