Urban Planning Advisory Team
As part of the Wuhan Placemaking Week, an expert team took part in a Design Charette about the development of ‘New Hanzheng Riverside Avenue’. Covering a 900-meter-long riverfront coastline at the confluence of Hanjiang and Yangtze rivers, the municipality’s vision was to recreate an urban core, characterised by global trading, finance & tourism. The team designed new strategies for intervention across scales, bringing back the old spirit of the two rivers and making it a new place of meeting and exchange.
The Institute’s prime strengths include supporting cross-border collaboration globally; upholding professional excellence in planning; offering trainings advancing sustainable planning; increasing awareness of major development trends and promoting best practices; all while serving as a “Urban Think Tank” facilitating the generation and dissemination of knowledge for better cities.
