Quzhou is located in the west of Zhejiang, the beginning of Qiantang River, the border of Zhejiang, Anhui, Fujian and Jiangxi. Quzhou is committed to build a central city on the boundaries of four provinces, to become a bridgehead for Zhejiang's economic expansion to the midwestern provinces, and to become a new growth point for Zhejiang's economic development.
The High-Speed Railway New Town is a new planned area in Quzhou, which will be developed by relying on the Quzhouxi Railway Station and will become the gateway to the west of Quzhou. Quzhou has previously held several international competitions for urban design and architectural design, which aims to gather the strength of elite teams from around the world to create a new town of Quzhou, the High-Speed Railway New Town, with cutting-edge, pioneering design concepts. So far, several excellent design projects such as Quzhouxi Railway Station and Quzhou Sports Park have been implemented in High-Speed Railway New Town, and the construction of other cultural, industrial and commercial & office projects is in full swing.
In this context, Quzhou aims to construct landmark buildings representing the image of Quzhou. The landmark buildings are located on the bank of Wenli Lake, the central area of High-Speed Railway New Town, and the Intelligent Island, which is the important area for driving the development of the High-Speed Railway New Town to the east and south.
Under this context, International Competition for Conceptual Design of Landmark Buildings of Quzhou is now open for application. The competition is hosted by the People's Government of Quzhou Municipality, organized by the Administration Committee of Quzhou Smart New City, and co-organized by Shenzhen Position Spatial Culture Development Co., Ltd. The project will call for conceptual design of iconic landmark buildings from worldwide designers.
The competition consists of 2 projects. Project #1 is the Wenli Lake Landmark Buildings, and Project #2 is the Intelligent Island Landmark Buildings.
Project #1 Wenli Lake Landmark Buildings are located at the gateway area of Quzhouxi Railway Station, and will be built into the highest buildings in the central area of Quzhou. Project #1 is open for institutions and individuals, while the review will be organized separately. It is not allowed to submit the same Concept Proposal to both the competition review for institutions and individuals.
Project #2 Intelligent Island Landmark Buildings are located in the important area of the High-Speed Railway New Town, which will drive the development of the city to the east and south.
