Prize Winning Urban Design for University Town

The Project was an International Competition organized by Chongqing City Planning Bureau. The Project called for master plans for Xiyong Cluster Central Area (11.2 sq.km) and Chongqing University Town (21.94 sq.km), as well as detailed urban design for the respective Central Areas (Xiyong Cluster 2.4 sq.km and University Town (2.79 sq.km). Located in the west of Chongqing City, Xiyong Cluster aspired to be the new urban focus which accommodated functions including a university town, a logistics park, a hi-tech industrial park and an integrated urban centre. The Master Plan which TOWNLAND presented featured an integrated spatial arrangement, threading the ideas of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ to create two distinct yet complementary urban forms for the areas with the distinctive Master Plans and detailed Urban Design schemes.

The Central Areas of the Xiyong Cluster and Chongqing University Town were the integral parts of the Project. The design scheme considered the integration of the Central Areas with the overall district, whilst emphasizing spatial arrangements conducive to their individual local characters. The Central Area of the Xiyong Cluster is designed with a dynamic commercial axis, while that of the University Town featured an east-west commercial spine intersecting with a north-south educational axis.TOWNLAND received THIRD PRIZE for this Project.
