Almost four years after SCHMIDHUBER won the tender, construction has begun on the Ningbo Urban Planning Center in China.

The coastal city of Ningbo is in the province of Zhejiang in the east of China, and has been continuously inhabited for more than 7,000 years. A completely new district is under construction, close to the historic heart of the city, and a central element of this district is theNingbo Urban Planning Center, a combination of community center, conference location and urban museum. Visitors will follow a narrative exhibition path through sections dedicated to history, culture, and technology, and the open structure of the façade opens the exhibition up to the surrounding city outside.
