British 'creative ideas’ wanted for China's Sichuan Province rejuvenation
The Shu City Project is looking to recruit British talent from design, planning and creative companies to ‘rejuvenate’ the historical elements of the 2,000 year old regional capital city Chengdu
With a budget of more than £350 million, the brief is to create a complex based around culture and tourism for the 333,330m² site.
The competition aims to transform the city, currently overwhelmed by rapid urbanisation. The winning scheme will blend Chengdu’s traditional buildings with modern hotels, retail areas and museums.
Hoped to become an ‘iconic site’ for the city, British designers are now asked to prepare preliminary ideas on the local culture and traditions in relation to space planning and the built environment.
Interested parties have until 13 October to register through the trade and investment page.
