2022 UDAD 🏆 Awards

Gold Winner | Luohu Corridor in Shenzhen | ARUP

Shenzhen is known for its 40-year-history growing into an international metropolis from scratch. Luohu District, where our project locates, is the origin of Shenzhen and thus has inherited well-preserved traditional folk culture, co-existing with modern liveliness and precious natural assets. As a densely built district, however, the growth of city has scattered these assets, being it natural, historical or cultural, into archipelagos. People get poor access to open spaces, neither can the green infiltrate into city with them being blocked by urban developments.

The Infrastructure as a Catalyst
The study covers an area of 90 hectares, which involves major parks, metro hubs, cultural facilities, shopping malls, urban renewal sites, communities and so on. Our mission is to perform a planning study on a Pedestrian and Bike Corridor Route, which is anticipated to work as a lively, artistically inviting and ecologically friendly public space with certain design approaches involved. We believe that if consider it as a Catalyst in the future, it will be a great opportunity for Luohu to achieve greater good for the public. Living in a Fragmented Luohu.
