Cloud city is a very large scale high tech masterplanning project that encompasses several city blocks in the Shenzhen New Area. The scale of the project meant that several arterial roads crossed the site so the decision was made to lower the ground plane below these roads in order to create a continuous pedestrianised landscape for the users. A mixture of high tech materials and extensive planting is uses to balance the aesthetic of the scheme.
