Haskoll makes it onto final shortlist for massive Chinese masterplan - images

London-based Haskoll Architects is the only Brit on the shortlist for a massive masterplan in China.

The firm is competing to design 1 million m 2of new mixed-use space for the city of Yantai, a settlement of 5 million people.

City planners, the all-important figures in the Chinese system, have called for the scheme, which will be a dense urban development consisting of residential, commercial, offices, a hotel and leisure facilities.

According to Haskoll, its response focuses on 'generating a linked public realm of the new urban squares, connected via internal streets'.

'These have been configured to create ease of movement for the inhabitants and also to maintain a car free environment where the vehicular traffic, parking and servicing has been carefully segregated,' the practice added.
