The Integrated Hub is designed by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas and presents a well woven collection urban activities-transit, recreation, landscape, high-rise and more, making up an enlivening complex. The project is symbolizes its location as China and Aedas explains that the hub will come up in Southeast Asia. However, the exact location is yet to be disclosed.The proposal emerged victorious in a competition amongst entries from around the world.
“The Integrated Hub is a focal development in the center of a vibrant regional district of a major Southeast Asian city. The project consists of four functional typologies: office, retail, civic and transport. Its design strives to organise and intertwine these varying programmes in a lushly landscaped environment, creating a new symbiotic urban landscape that shows how the built environment and nature may co-exist and offers a path forward to urbanization”, says Aedas.
The competition entry recently also won in the Big Urban Projects category at MIPIM/The Architectural Review Future Project Awards 2019, held recently. The MIPIM/The Architectural Review Future Project Awards celebrate excellence for projects at design or early construction stage, spanning across 12 categories.
The office and retail spaces have been placed on the southwest corner of the site, tapping into the vibrancy of the nearby busy roads. The civic uses including a library, community centre and sports centre, on the other hand, are placed on the eastern side to stay away from the noise of the streets. All these facilities are lifted up from the ground over a bus interchange and elevated rail tracks.
“The development was also heavily landscaped and offered 4.4 hectare of urban green space to the public. To protect users from the intense sun and tropical downpours, and to facilitate cooling breeze, wind canopies were designed to allow comfortable and easily accessible outdoor connections across the site”, says Aedas.
