Aedas-designed Center 66 in China receives high commendation at Global RLI Awards 2015. Aedas’ project Center 66 in Wuxi, China, was highly commended for RLI International Shopping Centre 2015 at Global RLI Awards 2015.

Center 66, designed by Executive Directors Christine Lam and David Clayton, is a mixed-use development consisting of two office towers and the city’s largest shopping mall. The three striking glass atria enclosing the mall evolve as the ideal response to the site’s circulation patterns, distribution of natural light, and arrangement of volumes. The project also preserved two historic theatre stages and a hall dating from the Ming dynasty at the heart of the site and integrated them into a large public plaza.
