Symantec Chengdu Campus

SWA provided landscape architecture for Symantec’s  research and development complex in Chengdu, China. The design reinvigorated the formerly inactive area, linking the building program and connecting the site to the larger city. The scheme creates a “brocade” by weaving together the building and site programs, and forming an oasis amid the dense, urban location. The design takes into account the city of Chengdu by paying attention to key infrastructural elements, particularly runoff. An extensive water filtration garden provides a natural solution for mitigating storm water, and an intricately programmed roof garden helps to connect the buildings and site, creating functional and environmentally sensitive urban outdoor spaces.
