Zhuhai will host one of the world’s largest retail developments when built by late 2014. This major destination contains 360,000 sqm leasable retail space together with commercial, hotel serviced apartment and residential spaces totaling 510,000 sqm of accommodation. The site of the development is unique in this important growing city, as it is the meeting point between the grid of the city and the natural topography of the surrounding hill range. IO created a dynamic “urban super wall” approach, which helps to define the site edge with the urban grid. The super wall is made of series of giant, stacked stone, steel and LED blocks that are stacked to open and cantilever out across the street.
