    The award recognised the project’s architectural design and sustainable build. Pak Tsz Lane Park was created to revive a long-forgotten space. The opening of the park in 2011 commemorated the centenary year of the 1911 Xinhai Revolution, the seeds of which sprouted in the park.

    The design opened up a new public green space while showing respect to its surroundings. Three main design elements allow park users to navigate the site’s history, including a feature pavilion, four exhibition garden rooms and an educational children’s play area. “This winning project, which gives tangible form to our beliefs, has successfully created a friendly, attractive, sustainable space for all users,” says Ronald Lu & Partners vice-chairman Bryant Lu. The practice was founded in 1976 and has offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
