Cash Prize Up to 14,000 USD in Kaizhou New City Competition 2020

Kaizhou New City International Young Designer Competition is not only an exploration to improve quality of urban public spaces, but also an exploration to find approaches of originality and artistic creativity. Taking the Central Park as the carrier as well as the reserved development plots and Renmin Canal as the design area, it is a good opportunity to rethink and look forward to future of the city from the ecological perspective.
The competition takes on a micro approach and small-scale intervention to a specific site directly, rather than the overall layout and macro strategy of Kaizhou New City. Meanwhile, it places an equal emphasis on design and social perspectives. With the design of urban structures to stimulate the city’s vitality through urban renewal/repair functions, smart health or sports facilities, intelligent urban furniture, interactive art installations, intelligent lighting and way-finding systems, competitors are also required to put forward corresponding operation concepts in later phases, propose new perspectives, new stages and new focus to enrich the daily life, in hopes of finally achieving the goal of livable city and natural harmony.

Design Principles:

  • Creativity: Create diverse and interesting places for citizens and tourists. Design should be original;
  • Locality: Project should be designed with a comprehensive consideration of local history, culture, and natural environment with its regional features highlighted;
  • Sustainability: The sustainability of materials and operation should be considered;
  • Feasibility: The selection of material and the form of construction should all be feasible;
  • People-orientation: Designs should fully consider diverse needs of different groups of people and provide citizens and tourists urban spaces for activities.

Design Category:

The competition focus on ecology and quality of life, as well as encourages innovation. Participants can select their own angles within design scope and draw up their own themes. The functions are not limited to:

Participants can submit an independent work or a series of entries. Multiple entries are not accepted. The series works refer to the series of creations under the same theme, while production-oriented repetitive patchwork is discouraged.
