The Beijing Jinyu Vanke Plaza is a new shopping center in the city’s northwestern district of Changping, home to the Ming Dynasty Tombs. The 140,000 m2 mall, from developer Vanke, aims to bring international style to this up-and-coming area. It includes a department store, supermarket, entertainment facilities, restaurants and other services. The shopping center’s architecture, designed by Woods Bagot, is characterized by sweeping curves and a neutral color palette. It incorporates as much daylight as possible, with a long organic shaped skylight over the main atrium.
