October 2, 2013
Phoenix Publishing and Media Group (PPMG), one of the largest media and publishing companies in China, has announced that JSA and FreelandBuck won first prize in an invited international competition. The winning proposal for the Kunshan Phoenix Cultural Mall—an 80,000 sqm corporate headquarters and cultural complex to be built in Kunshan, one hour west of Shanghai—consists of a 20-story office tower perched upon a five-story podium organized around four ‘cultural cores’ that respectively house theaters, exhibition halls, a fitness club and an education center. A retail loop, comprised of affiliated stores, restaurants and cafes, spirals around each cultural core, allowing culture and commerce to mix.
