1.3 工作内容 Work Content
The design aims to build a Binhai Vitality Area that is "based in Dongguan, leading the Bay Area, looking at the world, and facing towards the future", coordinate planning and design through a futuristic and international perspective, and create a new highland for cultural integration and innovation in the GBA, a new parlor showcasing the urban temperament and quality of Dongguan, and a new landscape inspiring future cultural and artistic life. The work content includes two parts, namely urban design research and architectural scheme design:
Based on the development positioning and objectives, and combined with the existing planning research results, a design development should be carried out to propose the conceptual urban design scheme within the scope of urban design research that is coordinated with and matched the Binhai Cultural Area, clarify the overall objectives and vision of the Area, put forward design concept that matches the development positioning, optimize the functional layout and traffic organization within the area, unfold the design research on the spatial form and public space, and raise implementation plans of each functional group in the area and relevant recommendations for urban operation. Among them, it is necessary to focus on studying the spatial scheme of the terminal commercial district to ensure the coordination with the spatial form and public space of the Binhai Cultural Area.
The construction of the Library, the Science and Technology Museum, the Cultural Museum, the Art Center and the Golden Coast (long vibrant corridor with coastal landscape), as well as supporting commercial facilities and public parking space are planned, with a total construction area of about 115,000-160,000 square meters. The design should consider the integration of public buildings and coastal landscape to ensure the continuity of the Golden Coast, so as to create fun and rich spatial experience.
