Design plan for Design Capital of Guangzhou updated
The optimized urban design plan for the Design Capital of Guangzhou was recently approved by Baiyun district's government in April 2023.
The new design plan focuses on the three design visions and six highlighted areas. The plan will develop Guangzhou's Design Capital, an area in the city that heavily focuses on the design industry, into an international design highland.
Located in the middle of Baiyun district, the Design Capital of Guangzhou is positioned as a modern service industry cluster. It also functions as an international brand gathering place for the design industry in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
The three visions are to build a "design+" park, create a new territory for spreading design culture, and promote design across the city.
The plan's six design highlights include the creation of an international design capital that integrates industry, city and diversity, and the formation of a distinctive image by using the "design + theme" model.
The other highlights involve creating an innovative space that utilizes the "design + culture" model, the sharing of corporate units for development concepts, and the construction of an urban design control element system that is both multi-level and multi-type.
