OMA today announced that construction on Xinhu Hangzhou Prism has begun, a pyramid-shaped mixed-use building, which forms the heart of Hangzhou’s Future Tech City in the new Technology Central Business District (CBD). The project was commissioned by Zhejiang Xinhu Haichuang Group.

“Xinhu Hangzhou Prism will encourage the development of a creative community in the new CBD of Hangzhou. The design enables flexible programming and a broad repertoire of communal outdoor spaces, while maintaining a strong visual identity: striking in its form, archetypical yet contemporary.”

Chris van Duijn


OMA’s design for Xinhu Hangzhou Prism integrates abstract modernity into the organic beauty of the surrounding natural landscape. The complex will house a hotel, retail space, lofts and an atrium garden. The 50,000 m² Prism is shaped by two radical oblique cuts through the building envelope, creating terraced lofts with generous scenic views. A large interior void creates a publicly accessible garden with water features and playgrounds.

A pinnacle reaching into the sky, the Prism pays homage to the ancient saying that the there is “paradise above, and Hangzhou below”. The Prism is complemented by an adjacent 35,000 m² residential tower, reflecting the geometry of a prism in its façade.

Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province, is known as one of best China’s cities, one of most beautiful, with a high quality of life. The city is rapidly developing into an important tech-hub, home to some of China’s largest technology companies (including Alibaba Group Holding and NetEase) and a burgeoning start-up scene. Hangzhou competes with Beijing and Shanghai to attract China’s new-economy workforce and young tech graduates.


The project is led by Chris van Duijn and Michalis Hadjistyllis and is expected to complete in 2020.
