Alan Dunlop and John Thompson and Partners have landed third place in the contest for a 150-hectare seaside resort in Shenzhen
The team was the only UK entry to make Binhai Authority of Shenzhen’s three-strong shortlist for the proposed international tourist destination and ecological seaside resort on the Dapeng Peninsula.
First place was awarded to the Shenzhen Urban Planning and Design Institute while second place went to Shenzhen City Square Architectural Design Consultants.
The brief called for designs which work with the existing terrain and ecological conditions of the area.
The project seeks to establish a major conservation zone for ecological and biological resources. A demonstration area for China’s marine and scientific development industries is also planned.
Alan Dunlop and JTP proposed a ‘sustainable and balanced development’ based on the ‘beauty, tranquillity and characteristics’ of the coastal area.
