Qingdao Pier, Shandong, China

The 300-meter Qingdao Pier, with masterplanning and architecture by international design firm dwp | design worldwide partnership, promises to serve as an "ocean bridge" and year-round entertainment destination for the coastal city of Qingdao in China's eastern Shandong Province.

The design of the waterfront is highlighted by a single iconic structure which acts as a "bridge" between the land and the ocean. This innovative and visually iconic development is designed as a Shedd structure with buildings and garden terraces fitted inside.

A diverse and flexible entertainment venue

The interior space is highly flexible and able to adapt to future market trends. The space will house a diverse range of fashion, technology and entertainment venues.

The central galleria provides for a year-round interior "bar street". There are also pedestrian promenades running along the north and south sides of the pier. The huge winter garden will serve as a fashion and planned program venue.

Adjacent to the pier are individual hotel villas, each with their own boat dock. The main hotel with terraced rooms at the end of the pier features an interior arcade that can be opened to the outside. The upper floor of the hotel will house a wellness center.

An environmentally sustainable Shedd structure

The project's Shedd "skin" is designed as a modular panel system with panels of vision glass with low-e coating, fritted glass, translucent glass, perforated metal panels, opaque panels and solar panels. The amount of energy produced by the solar panels will run the entire building and produce a surplus to sell back to the government electricity grid. There will also be wind turbines that take advantage of the site’s location. The whole project is expected to have a net zero carbon footprint.
