To put the notion of “people-centered development” into effect, Nanjing Municipal Bureau of Planning and Natural Resources has organized a series of competitions themed “Center on People, Design for Cities” since 2018. Focusing on public facilities in urban space, the serial competitions publicly solicit design proposals to create fine public spaces and thus improve the functional quality of cities. Six widely influential events have been held so far, including the Competition for Blood Donation Facilities in Key Areas of Nanjing, the Competition for Nanjing Metro Station Entrance and Exit, the Competition for Micro Stations in Jiangsu Horticultural Expo Garden, the Maigaoqiao Street Covered Bridge Design Competition, the Competition for Landscape Facilities in Nanjing Green Expo Garden, and the “Viewing Pavilion · Micro Building” Design Competition for the Vertical Environment-Community Units in Nanjing. The seventh competition carries on the efforts on small and micro-renewal of urban gaps and space so as to improve people’s livelihood and give expression to local culture.
Under the theme of Micro Settlement-Light Construction,in response to people’s needs for suburban or countryside experience in the post-COVID era, this competition spurs reflections on the outdoor leisure lifestyle – for instance, the emerging trend of camping – which is gaining popularity among China. Participants are encouraged to renew their understanding of contemporary urban space and life and design it with the strategy of landscape urbanism and the notion of “environment-community unit”. It is hoped that our efforts can crystalize into a demonstrative site for post-COVID new lifestyles in Nanjing’s public urban landscape, which are also conducive to economic growth.
This competition is open to participants at home and abroad, and the winning proposal will be implemented. Hopefully, through consultation, joint contribution and sharing, this event can offer an example of small and micro-renewal of post-COVID public urban landscape, facilitate urban renovation and ecological remediation, and thus enhance the gratification and contentment of citizens.
Members of the Academic Steering Committee for this competition include: Prof. Per Olaf Fjeld, Professor Emeritus and former President of the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), Prof. Christian Kerez at ETH Zurich, Prof. Yoshiharu Tsukamoto at Tokyo Institute of Technology and lead architect of Atelier Bow-Wow, Prof. Jesús Ulargui Agurruza at U.P.M E.T.S.A.M., Prof. Wang Weijen at Department of Architecture, Hong Kong University and lead architect of Wang Weijen Architecture, Prof. Zhuang Shen at Shanghai Jiaotong University, lead architect of Atelier Archmixing, and Prof. Ge Ming at Southeast University.

The project of China Artificial Intelligence (Guangzhou) Industrial Park has been approved for construction by Tianhe District Development and Reform Bureau of Guangzhou Municipality with Guangdong Provincial Enterprise Investment Project Registration Certificate (Project Code: 2206-440106-04-01-130031). The project owner is Guangzhou New Generation Artificial Intelligence Industrial Park Management Co., Ltd., and all the construction funds are raised by the project owner. As the project has met all applicable conditions, a competition is hereby launched on the architectural design of the project.
Competition Name: International Architectural Design Competition of China Artificial Intelligence (Guangzhou) Industrial Park
China Artificial Intelligence (Guangzhou) Industrial Park is located in the Guangzhou Artificial Intelligence and Digital Economy Pilot Zone. The park aims to advance the national digital economy strategy, further integrate the digital economy with the real economy, and contribute to the development of national pilot zones of artificial intelligence and the digital economy.
The project sits around the former site of Guangzhou No.2 Cotton Mill and will be divided into two parts in its future development. The western part will be for new buildings, with a focus on fostering a digital, green, and international city and a global headquarter of artificial intelligence, digital economy, and digital culture. The eastern part, where some historical buildings (workshops) of Guangzhou No.2 Cotton Mill are preserved, will be developed into a cultural and art platform for sharing and exchanges. The goal is to make full use of the historical and cultural value of the area and unlock new vitality for the ancient city of Guangzhou. The synchronous progress of these two parts will facilitate Guangzhou to become a leader in the industrial coordination in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and a pioneer of world-class industries, while creating a valuable urban space of high quality, high capacity, and high efficiency.
The project is situated in the Guangzhou Artificial and Digital Economy Pilot Zone, downtown Guangzhou. Aside from its superior geographic location, it boasts a convenient transportation network that includes Hua’nan Expressway, Huacheng Avenue, Metro Line 5 (completed), and Line 30 (under construction). Especially, the station of Line 30 will be connected to the project underground when it is accomplished.

Especially, the station of Line 30 will be connected to the project underground when it is accomplished.
Map of Location
The scope of the project reaches Yuancun West Street in the north, Huacheng Avenue in the south, Yuancun South Street in the east, and Hua’nan Expressway in the west. The total area is 97,173.33 square meters (within the property boundary), and the net area is 70,048 square meters (including the construction land and green space in both the western and eastern parts). Specifically, the eastern part covers 32,283 square meters, where the Bauhaus historic buildings in the core protection area need to be preserved and renovated； the west block covers 37,765 square meters, which will be the main area for new constructions.
This is an architectural design project for China Artificial Intelligence (Guangzhou) Industrial Park. The design plan should cover buildings, historical architecture renovation, public spaces, transportation systems, green landscapes, etc. within the scope of the project.
Aerial View of the Project site
The project covers a gross floor area of roughly 353,700 square meters and the budget for construction and installation fee is RMB 3.76 billion.
The detailed regulatory planning attributes of plot West 1 are Other Business Land and Commercial Land (B29B1), with the main land use functions being commercial and service support, business, and office. The gross floor area is approximately 330,500 square meters, of which 32,400 square meters are for commercial use and 298,100 square meters are for offices (including supporting residential buildings). The non-floor area (underground parking, equipment rooms, etc.) should be set up in accordance with the requirements of relevant laws and regulations and the needs of the plan.
The detailed regulatory planning attributes of plot East 1 are other business land, art and media land, and commercial land (B29B22B1), mainly to create a shared space for exchanges such as expositions, lectures, and conferences.
Plots East 2 and 3 are classified as parkland (G1), whose main functions are to increase open public space, activate the space of historic buildings, and create a small parkland with recreational functions； the total area of these two plots is 2,878 square meters. The detailed regulatory planning attributes of plots West 2 and East 4 are protective green space (G2) with a total area of 5,114 square meters. G1 and G2 are non-building plots and their landscape design should be considered as a whole with the landscape design of building plots.
The width of planned road one is 20m and the road section needs to be designed under the condition that the planned alignment remains unchanged.
