The capital of China’s Sichuan region, Chengdu, has been set as the location for a science and technology-heavy “future city.”
Two architectural firms, Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) and Gerkan, Marg and Partners (GMP), are behind the project’s development. The Chengdu Future Science and Technology City will cover just under two square miles of land, which will soon be home to new educational institutions, office spaces, as well as residential and cultural spaces.
The city will be divided into six clusters: education, laboratories, living, market, public transit and government. With the city poised to elevate the region’s “innovation industry,” it will also work alongside the Tianfu International Airport, set to be completed later this year.
