Yi Ou Lai Shanghai Village

Shanghai, China


JRDV Urban International is Lead Design Architect and Master Planner for Shanghai Village, a destination luxury retail center located in the Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone that also includes Shanghai Disney Resort. The project is inspired by Shanghai’s rich Art Deco heritage and includes pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods comprised of unique, intricately designed buildings recalling Shanghai’s historic lane neighborhoods.

The pedestrian walkways are focused on a beautiful waterfront, evocative of Shanghai’s Bund. Serving the enormous population of greater Shanghai, Shanghai Village is on target to become one of the most important luxury shopping destinations in the world. JRDV worked on the project continuously from first sketches to final execution including coordination with the local design institute and many local and international consultants. The project’s exquisite design detail and precise execution are unmatched by any recent outdoor retail projects in China. The project received ICSC’s 2017 Gold Award for New Developments in China.
