The RIBA invites you to sharpen your pencils and take part in a one-day design sprint and live design review session, to propose innovative design ideas for ‘City Sanctuary Beijing’, a new multi-functional, green public space to promote well-being in the city.
Venue: RIBA Exhibition space
The brief calls for imaginative ideas for design strategies and interventions to create a new sustainable, multi-use and people-friendly urban park for Beijing; as a re-interpretation of the traditional Chinese garden that blends art, nature and architecture, set in the post-COVID world.
It’s a great opportunity to get creative and think big! The ‘City Sanctuary Beijing’ should allow for healthy living, exercise and reflection in the city, encourage community connections and promote well-being within a framework of design excellence.
To encourage collaboration, there will be several multi-disciplinary teams, each with a team leader from the RIBA China Chapter.
Following the design sprint, the teams will present their schemes and discuss ideas at the ‘Live Design Review’ to a panel of expert judges:
· Michelle Yip (Founding Partner of FEI Architects and FEI Arts, China)
· Ken Wai (Global Design Principal, Aedas and Chair of the RIBA China Chapter)
· He Wei (Professor at CAFA, China)
· Umi Lyu (Head of Business Development China, RIBA) - Chair
