Sasaki opens office in Shanghai

Sasaki opens office in Shanghai

Office supports firm’s present and future work in China, throughout Asia.

By Posted by Tim Gregorski, Senior Editor | September 19, 2012

International planning and design firm Sasaki announces the opening of their new office in Shanghai, China. The office bolsters the firm’s commitment to China and the larger Asia-Pacific region.

Since their first project on the mainland 14 years ago, Sasaki has maintained a strong presence at the forefront of planning and design in China. The Shanghai office will support ongoing and future work in the region, where the firm is addressing a wide variety of design challenges and opportunities in the world’s fastest urbanizing society.

Sasaki’s work in China is already some of the most recognized in the country. Their projects reflect the nation’s increasingly urban context and progressive attitude towards design—evident in award-winning designs for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 798 Arts District, the National Creative Cluster, the Jinan New Urban District, and Jiading Central Park in Shanghai, which will open to the public this fall. Each of these projects serves as an innovative, sustainable, and culturally relevant model for development—a commitment Sasaki brings to all of their work. +
