The Shapingba project integrates a high-speed railway station with a comprehensive mixed use project over a network of roads, underground connections and public spaces. The complex design was inspired by the fluid dynamics of two high speed trains from China Rail’s high-speed fleet passing each other.

The main departure waiting hall is covered by a high and elegant long span roof. From here, people can see trains as they enter and exit the station platforms, which celebrates China’s new high-speed trains. Two 350m high rise towers rise above the station and commercial podium, forming a landmark twin towers development alongside three other elegant residential towers facing a park.
