Hangzhou Joy City
“where the Grand Canal and the metro convenes...”
The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, dating back to 500 BC, is the longest artificial waterway in the world. Hangzhou Metro’s Line 10 provides an intriguing convergence of China’s key modal route of the past meets its counterpart of today. The Project exploits this confluence and natural address. With the common urban densities in Asia, the Project’s massing translates to very verticalized solutions that can challenge many settings.
