Design Challenge:

As one of the important urban micro-centers in the Capital Development Circle, Jizhou District is an important gathering area for the relocation of non-capital functions. The new area, which is developed upon the Jizhou Station transportation hub, will become an important node for Jizhou District’s integration into Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The Competition intends to take Jizhou station as a media to break down urban barriers, integrate urban development, and implement the five concepts of innovation, coordination, green, openness and sharing in urban space. It will fully interpret the current conditions of Jizhou including ecological background, regional cultural characteristics, tourism resources, location and transportation advantages, and industrial resources, and study the status and role of Jizhou District in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei urban agglomeration.

The submitted design proposal should take into accounts the characteristics of the project area and functions of the region, and define the development orientation, industry positioning and urban function of the project around its core function as a transportation hub. The design proposal should also promote city-industry integration in Jizhou District, and shape the urban space of Jizhou, promoting its coordination with the surrounding cities and making it an example for micro-center development in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
