    22 October 2011

    International architecture firm Woods Bagot has been selected as the winner for the master planning of Shijiazhuang International Exhibition and Convention Centre competition.  The project is going to become a significant new landmark cultural and mixed use project in north China. The project recently received Highly Commended in Commercial / Mixed Use Future of this year’s Cityscape Global Awards for Architecture in the Emerging Markets on 27 September 2011 in Dubai. “The project represents an important urban renewal of a high profile site within Shijiazhuang that will work to stimulate and revitalise an under-developed part of the city.

    Woods Bagot’s guiding Value Proposition is to create an active precinct combined with first class international civic architecture that will engage with both the community and the environment and show case Shijiazhuang to the World,” said Vince Pirrello, Asia Executive Chairman and Director at Woods Bagot.  The master plan integrates adjacent sites and river edges, incorporating lakes and a city park, as well as restaurant and retail facilities, to create an active public space for the city to enjoy all year round.
