An ambitious plan by the local government in Sichuan Province – a vibrant new city that embraces and celebrates it’s industrial heart.

At the epicenter of the development is a busy freeway interchange that we decided to incorporate into the larger context as a giant, concrete spaghetti-like sculptural piece.

There are, additionally, new parts of the city that follow more traditional urban planning concepts; wide boulevards, a network of canals, linear retail and entertainment venues, civic buildings and monuments.
