The spatial quality of public spaces has become an important representation of a city’s identity. And the “smart revolution” driven by technology and innovation is imperceptibly infiltrating the development of cities and our way of living. As an important part of “The Third Hebei International Urban Planning and Design Competition”, the theme of this year’s competition, “Planning and Design for Beautiful Hebei - The 3rd Q-City International Young Designer Competition (China? Handan),” continues the discussion of “Quality City” with an emphasis on the integration of new technology. The site shall be the People’s Road in Handan City, embodying both the city’s history and an important nodal point for future development, this will be an optimal playing field for micro research and micro interventions. With the continuation of the core discussion revolving around “Quality City”, we hope to start a global discussion regarding the core values of public space.
