Sou Fujimoto Architects


Sou Fujimoto Architects has released its design for the Haikou Bay Pavillion by the Seaside development in Haikou, China, which will be completed by the end of spring.

Haikou is an up-and-coming industrial city with 1.7 million inhabitants on Hainan, China’s largest island, in the very south of the country. With its tropical climate and beach resorts, Haikou attracts many people from other provinces. Traditional China can only be seen in the old town, the rest of the city centre is dominated by high-rise buildings.

Haikou Bay master plan

Shaping the future of Haikou city and Hainan Free Trade Port, Haikou Bay Pavillion is part of the Haikou Bay master plan. The plan re-imagines 16 permanent destinations for the future of coastal living.

The master plan spans over 32km of waterfront – 19.6 km coastline in Haikou Bay and 12.5 km coastline in Jiangdong New Area. Introduced in June of 2020, the master plan transforms Hainan Province, an island at the southernmost point of the country, into a free trade port by the middle of the century.”
