“Kaizhou New City International Young Designer Competition” is calling for entries accepting submissions from young designers, artists, teachers and students in school in the fields of planning, architecture, landscape and art design.
The competition site is Kaizhou New City in Deyang City, Sichuan Province, which contains both regional characteristics and potentials in development. The competition encourages participants to select their own angles and conduct spontaneous research within the design scope. The topic and function are self-determined, while it needs to respond to current situation of the site, showing reasonable consideration on the practicability. The entries will be possibly put into operation based on decisions made by local government with specific implementation.
“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.
