Proposal is to build winning designs
A city in China has launched a competition to design a futuristic city from scratch. Called the Yilong Futuristic City International Design Competition, it is organised by Yilong District Management Committee and CBC (China Building Centre), sponsored by Guizhou Louna Architects Commune Cultural Development Co. Ltd, and media supported by Urban Environment Design (UED) Magazine.
Taking the competition as a platform, Yilong Cup will invite international top urban design experts as jury members, aiming at soliciting urban design proposals for a futuristic city
from across the globe. It intends to implement the winning projects.
The organisers say, ‘Yilong District is the most promising area in Guizhou, China, and its core area – Qiushui Lake – is facing a revolution in urban design, which is also an opportunity to build a futuristic city from scratch.’
The deadline for registration is 20 October, and for submissions 15 November. Find out more at futuristiccity.uedmagazine.net.
