PDRc and Archiland to design phase one of 40 sq mile city in China. Interview in 6/11/12 News Review

PDRc (URBANISM + ARCHITECTURE) with Archiland have won an international competition to design Tianjin Science and Technology City. Quite separate from the 10 sq mile Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City that we reported on back in March this year, the Tianjin Science and Technology City is to be a new 40 sq km development organised by Premier Wen Jiabao the Communist Party of China Central Committee Organisation Department.

The collaborative will be responsible for the detailed design of the initial phase of the project, totalling 7 sq km. A minimum carbon footprint is essential in this new eco-city plan which will look to enhance bio-diversity and expand the existing area of wetland within the site boundaries. The Tianjin Science and Technology City will be used to entice Chinese students studying overseas to return to the country after graduating and will be combined with ‘financial and other workplace-related benefits’ to do so.

WAN will be running an interview with Peter Verity of PDRc in next week’s issue of News Review, published Tuesday 6 November 2012.
