Shenzhen, once a fishing town in South China’s Guangdong province, is one of China’s best- known economic miracles of the past 40 years. Today, its gross domestic product ranks third among Chinese mainland cities, after Beijing and Shanghai. Shenzhen also enjoys one of the biggest Architecture & Design, Cultural and Creative communities in China. Design Shenzhen will bring new perspectives to design in China, creating a focal point for brands and designers within China’s most successful and fast expanding commercial and geographic region. Held within a specially designed show environment created by leading architects and designers, Design Shenzhen will be an attraction in itself – and digitally enabled.


Zaha Hadid Design (ZHD), founded by renowned British architect and Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid, has presented unparalleled collectible furniture designs at the leading design exhibition Design Shanghai over the last few years. Zaha Hadid Architects has recently been named the winner of a competition to design Tower C at Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base. The winning design is a multi-dimensional vertical city of two naturally-lit towers that respond to the city's urban intersections. Connecting directly with its adjacent park and plazas, which transform into a terraced landscape extending upwards within its two towers, the design invites the public into the heart of the building where cultural and leisure attractions are housed in sweeping bridges that tie the towers together and give panoramic views of the city.
