Symantec Chengdu is designed by SWA in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. It is a modern oasis landscape design for the Symantec’s research and development complex in a dense urban location. Previously, the landscape site was inactive and also banal. That’s why SWA tries to reinvigorate the site by connecting the building program and the site for the larger city around it.
