Unicorn Island is an innovative masterplan specifically designed for New Economy companies, which are a key driver of China’s economic transition from a production oriented to a knowledge and service based economy. The masterplan contains a wide repertoire of working and living conditions and is specifically designed for both start-up tech companies and established Unicorn companies (companies with a value of 1B USD).

作为创意产业的孵化器,独角兽岛被分为三环。位于核心区域的是生活实验室(Living Lab),它是众多公司的“创意引擎”,同时也向游客开放,使其可以体验隐藏在新经济背后的世界。核心区的外环是组织区域,其形态宛如一个村落,囊括了各种类型的办公空间和一个住宅项目,以及能够提供大量交流机会的创意环境。岛屿的边缘区域由各独角兽公司的总部构成,作为科技公司的终极形态,它们将沿着河岸分布在最外环的区域。

Developed to function as creative incubator, the island is organized into three rings. At the heart of the project is the Living Lab, an ‘Innovation Engine’ for the companies, which is also open to visitors to experience the otherwise invisible world of the New Economy. Branching out from this core is the weave zone, a village-like development which houses a mix of different office types, a residential program and amenities providing a creative environment with generous opportunities for informal encounters. The perimeter of the island is formed by the headquarters of the Unicorn companies, the ultimate state of a tech company. Their headquarters can blossom at the outer circle of the weave along the waterfront.

该项目使OMA近期在数字产业办公空间方面的实践(例如Axel Springer位于柏林的新总部)得到了进一步的发展。

The project further develops OMA’s recent work which challenges the workspace of the digital industry, such as the design for the new Axel Springer HQ in Berlin.
