New Coastal Lifestyle of Beihai
For Beihai, the ocean is life. By reading and learning from traditional Beihai, the urban design project studies the harbour culture rooted deeply in the everyday life of the city and explores different possibilities for the future in the design language of new urban spaces. Shoreline spaces are carefully reshaped to encourage interactions between people and the ocean. On Waisha Island, traditional urban space patterns are applied to contemporary lifestyle for younger generations of Beihai.
Statement of the jury
The newly designed coastal area, with its modern architecture, promotes interaction between humans and the ocean, thus promising a high-quality and contemporary residence and lifestyle.
