AWP win major design competition in China
The winning design concept will include 30ha of shopping malls, public squares, leisure complexes and 59 tower blocks set within four parkland landscapes. Construction is due to commence in late 2011.
The project comes less than six months after the company first looked at China as a potential market.
Steve Laws, director of AWP, said: “This is a significant development for Wuhan and we are up against competition from other Chinese and overseas design companies, including the architects who previously worked on the retail complex. Hopefully, this project will be a springboard to secure further work in Wuhan and other parts of China.”
