RAFFLES CITY BEIJING: PROMOTING COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES

Spark Architects as Architects

Raffles city Beijing is an example of how modern architecture can be successfully immersed in a local context. It has become an integral part of the social landscape, absorbing and animating new forms of urban life.


It’s extremely interesting to experience these two parallel realities; the modern shopping mall and the outdoor plaza landscape which together have encouraged a collective development. In these instances, the architecture gives new meanings to the city and a new understanding of the usage of public space.


It is rewarding to see that Raffles City has been embraced by the public, where the different communities have established a relationship with the architecture and perceived it through a variety of functional, cultural and emotional senses.
