U-Center Plaza: Waiting for the Next Ten Minutes

The U-Center is a famous shopping center located at the corner of a crowded intersection next to Wudaokou subway station in Beijing. Z+T Studio was commissioned to rejuvenate a linear passageway to the east of U-Center building. The goal is to create a dynamic and inviting place for the pedestrians and the people from the nearby neighborhoods to spend quality time there, and the U-Center could benefit from the crowd to open more retail spaces on the east side of the complex.
