Woods Bagot’s AI Plaza, Shanghai won first place in the 2022 Global Retail & Leisure International (RLI) Awards in the International Shopping Centre – New Build category. The team celebrated at the prestigious Global RLI ceremony held in Saudi Arabia amongst fierce competition. Woods Bagot Principal and regional Retail sector leader, Billy Ip, and Dubai Principal, Samer Charara, accepted the award sponsored by MK Illumination.
The award recognises the contribution made by the shopping centre that has reimagined the retail experience by utilising innovation and creativity to stand out from the crowd. As the first commercial plaza in Shanghai’s emerging art and media precinct, West Bund, the project is located alongside the Shanghai AI Tower. The design is also surrounded by a large swathe of art galleries and museums, offering an interactive “tech-galarie” experience from the inside out.
