After the 2005 FAR8 competition on urban density, FAR Architecture Center Shanghai has held its second competition, the SINOCITIES AWARDS 2007, an International Architecture Design Competition on New Public Space. Designers and students from all over the world could freely choose a site on the map of Sinocity, a fictional growing city in the heart of China, and apply their innovative designs.
The SECOND PRIZE (5,000 RMB) went to Thijs van Bijsterfeld
and Nikoline Dyrup Carlsen
for their project REANIMATING CHINA. The authors proposed a range of small-scale planning tools to and thus made a mature assessment of the problems and realistic opportunities in current Chinese urbanism.
