Old docklands and shipyards are being remade into new mixed-use communities that reunite the waterfront with the city. Proposed neighborhoods have building heights that step back from the water’s edge. High-rise buildings mark key places, with low- to mid-rise buildings making up typical neighborhood blocks featuring interior courts and retail podiums. Pedestrian and local vehicular traffic are at grade; parking and arteries are below. Redesigned ferry and bus operations and a new multi-modal transit hub sit beneath a grand public park that is perched over the bay. Former liabilities will become assets, and selected structures such as derelict dry docks will be adaptively reused as a water inlet and marina serving as the centerpiece of a new plaza. Skeletal structures and overhead rail cranes of several warehouses will be preserved and transformed into a commercial destination with retail, restaurants, and nightlife venues. ■ 2013 AIANY Design Awards ©EE&K a Perkins Eastman company G Jury: “The level of inventiveness is amazing. An industrialized waterfront is being reclaimed by integrating leisure, housing, and retail with a superb hierarchy of spaces. A rich layering of experiences has been very well thought through.” EE&K DESIGN TEAM: Chao Ming Wu, AIA, Ming Wu, AIA, Barry McCormick, AIA, Jungwoo Ji, Mikhail Kim, Yung Eun Kim, LEED AP, Richard Qian Li, AIA, LEED AP, Liang Liang, LEED AP, Kiran Mathema, Katie Paxton, Prashant Salvi, Mathew Snethen, RA, Yuehui Xu, RA, Xinghua Zhao LOCAL DESIGN INSTITUTES: Shanghai Institute of Architectural Design & Research; Qingdao Urban Planning & Design Institute LOCAL PLANNING INSTITUTE: Shanghai Urban Planning & Design Research Institute OWNER’S REPRESENTATIVE: Silver Asset Limited Summer 2013 Oculus 43 http://www.naylornetwork.com/arc-nxt/
