VANKE · CITY GROWTH HALL by MDO (MORE DESIGN OFFICE)


— The perfect fusion of architectural renovation and immersive experience


Vanke · City Growth Hall is located in the 'Eastern Suburb Memory' in Chengdu. The original building held the Hongguang Electronic Tube Factory, a state-run factory which was founded in 1958 which produced oscilloscopes and kinescopes for the military. The old factory was left to ruin whilst the other neighboring buildings have become part of a thriving cultural and design hub.

Our concept for renovation was to create a clear language between old and new, to leave traces and history of the existing building, whilst inserting a series of new contrasting elements.
