BDP completes Chinese projects

The first raft of BDP designed projects in China is now starting to complete with two civic projects in Suzhou, one of the country??s most visited cities.
 

Earlier this summer saw the completion of the Suzhou Planning and Exhibition Hall. The building is an 8,000 sqm exhibition facility within the Science and Technology Smart City. The project showcases past, present and future developments of Suzhou District and sits on the edge of a new central parkland area, with great views of the surrounding landscape and hills. It houses a 1,000 sqm model of the new district, 3D viewing gallery, interactive displays, conference facilities and multi-purpose exhibition halls.

 

With a spectacular setting overlooking Taihu Lake, the Suzhou Tourist Centre consists of a banqueting, exhibition, conference space for up to 600 people, a centre for local design products and produce, three restaurants, VIP club and tourism centre. The design also creates a new public space which overlooks the lake. The building was completed in May but an official opening ceremony will take place before the end of the year.

 

BDP opened a studio in Shanghai in 2011 and now employs 35 staff there. 2014 will see the completion of the first of three large retail led projects for Inter IKEA, in Wuxi, and also a new Faculty of Medicine at Nanjing Medical University.
