The Guangzhou Creative Valley campus is centered around a deeply respectful approach to the existing landscape, to local traditions and heritage. The naturally lush environment of the mountainside campus is left largely untouched, becoming the setting for buildings to be placed as precious objects.


This ‘borrowed landscape’ is home to a diverse set: a landmark hotel tower and pedestrian shopping district border the street, while private residences, business incubators, curated gardens, a library and an art museum shelter around the ponds at the heart of the site.
