Chongqing Cuntan Cruise Terminal TOD, China (3D animation)
Located within the Chongqing's Cuntan Port area, the project will become a 100,000 sq m mixed-use complex, hosting the terminal station as well as a spade of urban features. Inspired by the Chinese ancient painting trope of the Dragon Gate the two towers are symmetrically positioned on the podium while connected via a crown sky bridge, forming a hollow space in the middle to extend the green corridor towards the hinterland.
The design constitutes a layered urban space built on a composite transportation system, stitching the plot with surrounding area through three-dimensional greening. Leaning into the height difference between the towers and the descending site terrain in the south, the design creates a green cascading journey along the rooftop park that seamlessly connecting the project with cruise terminal and the riverfront.
