WAN presents first images of BDP's regeneration masterplan for Foshan 

BDP has been appointed as masterplanner, and designer for all of the main buildings, in a major urban regeneration project in the Sanshui district in the heart of the city of Foshan. Located in the south of China, Foshan is one of the cities which has been identified for major expansion by the Chinese government.

BDP will masterplan the new Cultural and Administration Centre for Sanshui and design the new cultural centre, library city archive, senior university, medical research building, laboratories, city exhibition hall and civic offices.

Sanshui means three rivers; these mark the historical beginnings of the district and are represented in the new masterplan proposals by three principal routes linking and organising movement between the sites – a leisure river, a formal river, and an ecology river.

BDP has approached the design of the masterplan and the new buildings with the aim of delivering excellent learning and research environments, stunning performance venues and galleries and stimulating office environments, which reflect the rich culture of Sanshui.

Stephen Gillham, director of architecture in BDP’s Manchester studio, stated: “this is a significant win for BDP in China. It demonstrates our combined interdisciplinary strengths, creating exceptional new places for people. This development will have clarity and permeability and will provide a recognisable symbol for the whole district.”
