Alan Dunlop and JTP on Shenzhen resort shortlist

  • Comment

A multi-disciplinary design team featuring Alan Dunlop, John Thompson and Partners (JTP) and Gillespies has made the final shortlist for a 150-hectare seaside resort in Shenzhen

The UK team is vying against two Chinese outfits – the Urban Planning and Design Institute of Shenzhen University and BAZO Urban Development Group – in the race for the job.

Australia Pride Design International and Hassell have also made the reserve shortlist.

Organised by the Binhai Authority of Shenzhen, the project will create an international tourist destination and ecological seaside resort on the Dapeng Peninsula.

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.

JTP established a Shanghai studio in January last year and has worked on more than 20 major masterplanning projects in the booming economic powerhouse.

JTP partner Alan Stewart said: ‘Our team has been working on a broad range of fascinating projects here in China for the past five years, with some of the country’s most prestigious companies and cities. We believe this partnership is uniquely qualified to deliver an outstanding project for the Dapeng Peninsula.’

Alan Dunlop added: ‘This is an internationally significant project and it is a privilege to be working again with such a talented and committed team and ambitious client.’
