MAP completed the concept design for a mixed-use development in Taiyuan, Shanxi,alongside the Government Town Hall and State Theatre. The design brought together:
- Retail - 100,000 m2
- Hotel - 30,000 m2
- Office - 30,000 m2
- Residential - 50,000 m2
- Open space - 15,000m2
The contemporary design proposed a stepped plaza creating an urban amphitheatre, paying homage to the State Theatre opposite. The site also connects to a proposed elevated rail link, drawing commuters into the second floor of the mall and allowing them to exit down the stepped plaza into the city square.
