competition welcomes young designers and students from both home and abroad
working or studying in the areas such as architecture, urban planning,
landscape, art and other creative disciplines. Both individual and group candidates
are welcome. There is no limit on the number of people in one candidate group.
The schemes are required to
be submitted in electronic format, including at least two A1 panel files and a brief introduction with no
more than 500 Chinese words.All official documents of
the competition will be made available in both Chinese and English, and Chinese
will serve as the major language.
The target site of the competition is the west bank of Mangdao River
running through the center of Yangzhou Biodiverse and Si-tech City. The theme
is “Eight-kilometer Fun Bank”.
The total length of the target riverbank is around 8km, which will become the
core segment on the LOOP, the 48-kilometer
ecological circle. The goal is to develop this area into a model preserving
Yangzhou’s water culture as well as to create the modern classic urban water
environment in China comparable to the River Gauche in Paris through creative
waterfront space design.
“Fun” means to
enhance the attractiveness of the urban waterfront space with innovative design.
Creative design is encouraged to interpret the modern waterside space in
Yangzhou with new thoughts and ideas. The scheme can be an entire design
concept for the whole area as well as a focused design for a smaller area. Proposals
of possible urban activities and exhibitions are also welcome.
竞赛原则 Awards Setting
Innovation: Being creative and original;
Green and Sustainability: Combining the low-impact design with solutions to protect the vulnerable eco-environment alongside the river bank;People-oriented: Emphasizing the perception, use and
experience of people.
The competition encourages candidates to develop their designs from a fresh,
open and creative perspective instead of in the traditional ways of building
master plans. Focused design concepts and schemes for small-scale space or
articles which could exert influence on the entire area (the leverage methodology)
are more than welcome.
We expect diversification and crossover solutions. The scheme submitted can
be a design concept or urban/landscape design for the entire target area. Focused
design proposals for a specific topic (e.g. space design for a specific node, art
installations, etc.) are also encouraged. Candidates can choose one or more
topics for their design from the following list.
■Concept and design for riverbank slow-traffic system
of other nodes, spaces and systems
Candidates are allowed to choose one or more topics from the list to
build their schemes upon. All topics mentioned above are suggested areas for
design and are not compulsory requirements. Therefore, candidates are also encouraged
to submit creative schemes and proposals for other possible topics.
