Luhu Science and Technology Cultural Area in Longhua District is currently a natural outskirt separated from the urban tissue. With the settlement of public facilities in each plot, the area becomes more open, public and energetic. Longhua Science and Technology Center is located in the core area of it. On the west of the building, the Huanguan Middle Road occupies the major part of the urban interface, which is an important portal to the whole cultural area. It is confronted with a shortage of land. We will concentrate the constructions on the two ends, control the main buildings to three floors, so as to reduce pressure on the waterside space. We will connect the roof and the ground floor and extend the activities on the waterfront to the roof. We will adopt a partial overhead design for the first floor, directly guide the flow of tourists to the waterfront, and blend the landscapes into the view of the city via architectures. By a series of vertical connections, the Scientific & Technological Center has blended the city and the nature on the east and west, intending to create an urban life space based on technology exhibition and education.
