The film offers an intimate account of Safdie’s approach to the design and construction of Raffles City Chongqing (RCCQ), China’s new 1,127,000 sqm multi-use destination.
Located at the confluence of the Jialing and Yangtze Rivers, the project includes eight super structures, a retail podium with a multi-model transit hub, and an entirely reconceived transportation system. Bridging across four of the development’s towers is a 300-metre-long enclosed skybridge with over 15,000 sqm of amenities. Undergoing a phased opening, RCCQ is set to complete late 2020.
