We have more exciting news at Tekuma Frenchman! Today, we were awarded the second prize for the Urban Design of Huanggang Port Area at Shenzhen Park of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Zone. While the international jury unanimously awarded Tekuma Frenchman with the 1st place, the final local review gave the 1st prize to Zaha Hadid Architects, which was a close second. The official announcement can be found here.
Tekuma Frenchman was shortlisted in early summer 2020, along with fourteen other consortiums. The shortlist, namely, included OMA, MVRDV, Zaha Hadid Architects, Morphosis Architects, MAD Architects, and Grimshaw Architects. It was quite an honor to be part of such a cohort.
Our scheme was inspired by our very own MIT campus infinite corridor. Perhaps you can spot it in the design!
We thank our consortium member Ingame Office Ltd. (Shenzhen) and Shenzhen Transportation Design & Research Institute Co., Ltd.! With travel restrictions due to COVID; our team planned a creative presentation format shown here in the photos. For more information, see the project page here.
