KCAP + CAUPD selected for final stage in Longgang Riverfront competition Shenzhen, China

KCAP together with local partner China Urban Planning and Design Institute (CAUPD) is selected to proceed to the final stage of the competition for the design of the 46 km2 riverfront area in Shenzhen Longgang. The team’s joint proposal is shortlisted next to team Shenzhen University  Planning & Research Institute + CRTKL out of four international competitors.

With the key question how to transform the invisible and long forgotten Longgang River into a showcase for innovation, culture, ecology and quality urban life in Shenzhen, our plan focused on creating a flexible transformation framework to deal with the complexity of the riverfront area.

Based on this urban concept from the first stage, the final phase asks for a detailed urban design scheme for a site of 50 ha within the larger area.
