|cuihu wetland park, beijing|
|Under our joint venture Rennie &
Stagg, we were invited to submit proposals to the
management office of Cuihu National Urban Wetland Park,
Beijing, for the design of a new £10 million wetland
centre. The design sensitively responds to Beijing's only
natural wetland landscape, 157 hectares in size , and
home to 191 species of wild birds. Inspired by birds
taking flight, a series of proposed pavillions create
ripples of pathways, water gardens and working wetlands,
embedding the scheme within this unique landscape and
aiding management of this precious wetland habitat.
As part of a consortium led by WWT Consulting (wwtconsulting.co.uk) we competed against two other invited teams. Our entry reached the final round of judging but narrowly missed out to Internationaly renown architects, Kengo Kuma and Associates.
|Value: $15 million US dollars (£10 million)|
