“Kaizhou New City International Young Designer Competition” is not only an exploration to improve quality of urban public spaces, but also an exploration to find approaches of originality and artistic creativity. Taking the Central Park as the carrier as well as the reserved development plots and Renmin Canal as the design area, it is a good opportunity to rethink and look forward to future of the city from the ecological perspective. The competition takes on a micro approach and small-scale intervention to a specific site directly, rather than the overall layout and macro strategy of Kaizhou New City, China.
