Architecture Design Competition for Overall Renovation of Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace

In response to the work plan of the municipal Party committee and the municipal government, based on the functional positioning and future development demands of Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace, the International Bidding of Architectural SD for Overall Renovation of Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace is officially launched.
