Net Dragon Campus Masterplan, Changle, China, 2009
2011.01.23

The project is situated on a stretch of virgin beach by the East China Sea. The client, Netdragon Websoft Inc., one of the biggest online gaming companies of China, wanted to develop the site into their new headquarters that include the R&D center, Dormitories, Hotels, Villas and some entertainment facilities.

To take full advantage of the stunning natural beauty of the beach, and to preserve the already battered coastal forests which is the key factor of protecting the coastal land from the ocean, OPEN proposes to build the new campus scattered among the forests, mostly on spots where trees were already destroyed for fish farms and other functions. A meandering pathway through the forests links the different program components together. Each of the program function is designed with high density and efficiency to minimize the footprints thus impact on nature while maximizing the natural landscape.

This master plan is an experiment on the delicate balance between development and preservation of nature.
