    WISDOM VALLEY October-December 2010 | NBBJ Shanghai The Wisdom Valley project was a masterplan competition a new business district in Nanjing, China. The program brief called for a riverfront retail zone, offi ce and hotel towers, a low-rise residential block, and an offi ce park incubator for technology companies. Our plan focused on the occupants experience, providing a pedestrian-friendly riverside promedade with a retail village as well as a more traditional shopping mall. The hotel and offi ce towers were designed as a gateway, implying an axis from central Nanjing to the Yangtze river, several kilometers away. THe secluded block was designed with privacy in mind, whereas the technology park provides a green oasis for this new commercial center. My responsibilities on this project included design concepts, 3D modeling, 2D drawings, and the preparation of client presentations.
