Chengdu Hyperlane wins World Architecture Festival China Awards 2022

We are pleased to announce that Aedas-designed Chengdu Hyperlane has received Outstanding Design Awards at World Architecture Festival (WAF) China this year. Among many project submissions, Chengdu Hyperlane is awarded one of thirteen Outstanding Design Awards by its design excellence and this recognition highlights our dedication to creating world-class design solutions that are tailored to the needs of cities and communities in China.

In collaboration with ASPECT and BPI, Aedas designs the 2.4km long Hyperlane Park brimming with social, retail and creative space– the future of mixed-use development. Located on the Northern axis of Chengdu's urban centre, Hyperlane Park consists of 12 plots, spanned across the sky garden corridor, overlooking the
city and project entrances. Designed as a 2.4 km continuous urban landscaped corridor, the sky walkway is a leisure space that cultivates a live-work dynamic.

‘Blending recreational parks and commercial space is not as simple as overlaying the two together. A natural integration of them both must be achieved to cultivate synergy. We want to use the park to attract foot traffic for businesses and allow people to experience a social element with their shopping experience. This results in an ideal integration of the city and its people with landscape and businesses while creating an urban oasis that is functional and open. The concept behind creating this landmark that realizes a new way of socializing is one that is fitting to Chengdu's constantly evolving and dynamic appeal.’ – Aedas Global Design Principal, Dr. Andy Wen.

Hyperlane's open spatial plan is ideal for diverse social gatherings, outdoor exhibitions, installations and a wealth of public attractions that create endless entertainment for the city. The main portion of the development is allocated to a variety of businesses and functions such as retail, residential and creative space. The creative space can be transformed to skate parks, interactive art installations or performance space that appeals to people of all ages to enrich the public green corridor.

Executive Director Dongwei Wang adds, ‘We believe that this accelerated shift from real-life to online social interactions has an immense impact on spatial design in commercial developments. Social spaces must be designed with the health and safety of the community first in mind, while also promoting an inviting environment. Social distancing measures need to be implemented in a way that meets commercial demands, and proper public and private space need to be integrated to allow people to feel more relaxed in their environment.’

Through organising the annual events integrating awards judging, design forums, exhibitions, networking events, and various kinds of activities and events, WAF China is dedicated to establishing a professional and diversified platform to strengthen the connections between China and the global design industry, aiming to create more opportunities for talented designers around the world to share their design ideas.
