For the Chinese developer Vanke, we created the immersive brand experience for OPALUS, an urban development in Guangzhou. The scope included storyline and branding strategy, and we even wrote a fairy tale to set the tone for the project. We also led the team of architects, interior designers and landscape architects who realized our placemaking vision including the logo, signage, sculptures, the entry sequence, lighting, fountains, pavilions and other public spaces.
