Half Moon Bay

Suzhou, China 2016


The Half Moon Bay Project site is located east of the CBD core area, on the east side of the Du Shu Lake. The area was planned by the Municipal Government to boost development of higher education and innovative technology in Suzhou.

An interesting combination of curvilinear and rectilinear forms, the urbane complex acknowledges and harmonizes well with the radial master plan of Moon Bay and the buildings already in place. Two tall towers align to the Western setback line descending from the Southeast corner of the site with two low-rise buildings in between. This strong formal arrangement introduces the idea of edge and center, with the center opening up to the residential garden spaces. Crossing the site is a 66 ft (20 m) greenbelt, which connects the bay side with the lake side.
