Description
In the forthcoming competitions of city branding, the winners will be those providing their residents a better quality of life. “Q City Plan · Qinhuangdao International Student Design Competition” is a new way to make the public space diverse and interesting through directly intervening in the specific built environments instead of huge landscape axis, large scale landscape nodes, to complement the insufficient research and design on micro spaces in cities. It is more like an acupuncture, which insert needles into the body of one city on certain points to heal and invigorate it with a small-scale intervention.
What set the “Q City Plan · Qinhuangdao” different from others are the degree of autonomy that is given to the participants. Types of design are not restrictive and the site of project is supposed to be selected by the participants themselves. Under the most appropriate conditions these projects can be implemented. Participants can be the principals of their own design and construction, who own the right to control all aspects of projects including designs, materials, constructions and costs.
