JRDV is the lead-designer and master planner for a new Internet of Things (IoT) research campus district in West Songjiang, one of the most detailed master plans for a research campus in China. The project is a comprehensive multi-year phased development for a next-generation urban research center focused around a town center. Included is the integration of urban design, parcelization, transportation planning, landscape design, structural design and civil design. JRDV designed floor-plate research facilities that are integrated into an urban context with active places to live, work, learn, and play. The site plan creates a high amenity urban environment that maximizes active pedestrian connections between each of the development zones.
