Hai He Riverside, Tianjin, People’s Republic of China.
(Tianjin City Council)

Masterplan for the regeneration of the riverside in central Tianjin. This part of the city is to form a new cultural and entertainment centre. The masterplan proposed the removal of all through traffic by the construction of an elevated riverside podium deck, beneath which the inner ring road would run.

The design also featured a new quayside and adjoining opera house, an enclosed winter garden, hotels, apartment blocks and a riverside park.

Project received a Landscape Institute Commendation Award in 2008.
