Call for in­ter­na­tional de­signs for north Tor­toise Hill area

Changjiang Weekly - - TOP NEWS - By Wang Yaxin

The Wuhan Land Use and Ur­ban Spa­tial Plan­ning Re­search Cen­ter an­nounced on the web­site of UNHabi­tat that it is now ac­cept­ing pro­pos­als from in­ter­na­tional stu­dents for the de­sign of the north­ern ar­eas of Tor­toise Hill.

At the con­flu­ence of the Yangtze River and the Han River, the north­ern ar­eas of Tor­toise Hill have rivers, lakes, cul­tural relics, and other ge­o­graphic fea­tures. There are 10 places, such as the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge and an­cient Qin­tai, that are un­der pro­tec­tion. How to high­light the value of the Yangtze River cul­tural relics is the chal­lenge in its de­sign.

This com­pe­ti­tion is open to ap­pli­cants from stu­dents ma­jor­ing in ur­ban plan­ning, ur­ban de­sign, ar­chi­tec­ture, land­scape build­ing, ur­ban econ­omy and other rel­e­vant ma­jors. Stu­dents may work in­di­vid­u­ally or in a group. Reg­is­tra­tion in­for­ma­tion can be found on the web­sites unhabi­tat. org and fukuoka.unhabi­tat.org.

Ex­perts from the UN-Habi­tat and the Wuhan Land Use and Ur­ban Spa­tial Plan­ning Re­search Cen­ter will eval­u­ate sub­mis­sions. Three groups will be se­lected and in­vited to join Space Con­struc­tion Week in Novem­ber in Wuhan.
