Description
Theme: Oriental Landscape and Futuristic City
In the era of globalization, small-mid size cities are the engine of local development, and the potential core habitat residence. The urbanization of Chinese Midwest cities are crucial to the development of a balanced city network of China. In such scenario, we are confronted with many emerging challenges such as climate change, population migration, energy crisis, inheriting regional characters, etc., which demands development of new innovative and adaptive urban approach and more complex urban morphology. Thus, this competition is intended to initiate a conversation on the modern city life founded on nature, involving topics such as local vs global, tradition vs future, Eastern vs Western, landscape vs city, nature vs living habitat, preservation vs development, intention vs reality. The unique mountainous landscape of Guizhou has its own regionalism characters, that inspired many poets to write down grandeur and sensational lines. The competition is focusing on the new relationship between the local typical Chinese landscape and the development required for the future city, the connection between the nostalgia of traditional landscape vs modern way of living, with the foresight of globalization in local regional development.
