Songjiang Art Campus – Archi-Union

Chinese architects from Archi-Union have revealed their new project: the Songjiang Art Campus in the new suburb of Shanghai. In charge of designing both a new urban space and a cultural hub close to the local university, Archi-Union focused on creating something respectful of pedestrians, nature and of the surrounding neighborhoods.

A pressure that finally turned into an advantage.
