The Shanghai International Design Center designed by Lompreta Nolte Arquitetos, Nanda Eskes Arquitetura & Architecture for Humanity is located in Yangpu, China. The new complex consists of a structure divided into green superimposed terraces, which will host, amongst others things: a hotel, a museum, a library, commercial and office spaces.
The landmark building is represented by the grand entrance (Marco Polo’s door) consisting on two towers facing each other. Located at the Western part of the site, it marks the symbol of international openness of the new complex. The design garden and commercial gallery (Galleria Matteo Ricci) are designed to be gathering points and buffer zones between the campus and urban fabric.
