Designed around the central axis that joins the Dishui Lake district in the core of Shanghai, this masterplan will create a new hub for global commerce and serve as the link between two globally iconic and economically important nodes. As a business district that will attract some of the world’s most prominent companies, the site occupies an important commercial, political, and civic role, with its design providing a functional area where multinational corporations can optimize business operations, while also creating open spaces for the surrounding communities to enjoy. Reflecting the desire for beautifully designed buildings alongside civic communal spaces, the masterplan envisions a memorable integrated work of urban design, landscape, and architecture.In total, the large-scale plan includes four commercial buildings, 7,622 square-meters of civic space, 89,343 square-meters of retail buildings, and 28,751 square meters open space.The Ring building serves as the dramatic centerpiece of the Shanghai Lingang Special Area Dishui Lake Financial Bay Pilot Project, symbolizing prosperity and unity. The site radiates from this state-of-the-art circular, cantilevered observation deck and museum with exhibition spaces, supported by four mixed-use towers. The structure will afford 360-degree views of nearby Dishui Lake, Shanghai, and the Pacific Ocean, while providing space for premier cultural experiences. Combining long, curved spans and structural glazing, the ring is an engineering marvel. At night, the ring will be activated with light shows and events. The Ring is supported by four mixed-use towers that will house offices, retail and provide direct access to the Ring itself.Flanking the Ring building are two office towers—Tower Waterfall and Tower Rhomboid—that will accommodate corporations from around the world, solidifying the Shanghai Lingang Special Area Dishui Lake Financial Bay Pilot Project’s position as a nexus for some of the world’s most important companies.
