HASSELL wins Dongguan CBD landscape design competition

HASSELL was named a joint winner of the Dongguan CBD landscape design competition this week. The Request for Proposal stated that two winners would be selected from the competition stage, with one of the practices to be commissioned to work with the client on concept design development and implementation.

The winning scheme by HASSELL envisages a liveable central business district that respects and enhances the local climate and environment. The landscape design takes into account Dongguan's sub-tropical climate and the impact from the microclimate and sunlight, achieving 40% green spaces, 60% shading area and 100% recycling of water resources.

The concept showcases Dongguan's spirit and provides its residents with an enjoyable green space in the heart of the financial district.

The win was reported by the Dongguan Daily on 7 November.
