The International Urban Design Competition for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Innovation and Cooperation Zone was officially launched last July. It’s an ambitious project at the heart of the Greater Bay Area promoting innovation and collaboration within the alliance. The project lies at the meeting of land and sea, and sits at the intersection of two scientific and technology innovation corridors, strategically connecting the inner development ring of the GBA to Guangzhou’s southern urban expansion.
Six international consortiums were shortlisted, and following several rounds of deliberation, the jury awarded Tekuma Frenchman with its local partner Tsingua Tonghen Design Institute, and two competing firms the first prize. We are thrilled to share this news with you and looking forward to contributing to the Nansha government’s development vision.
It is worth mentioning that this is the second time Tekuma Frenchman is awarded the first prize for a competition within the Greater Bay Area. In 2018, Tekuma Frenchman won the New Marine City International Urban Design Competition for its ‘Ocean Edge’ proposal which you can revisit here.
