Located in China, Hua’An County City Masterplan was designed by BDP. The six month project will involve developing a sustainable city masterplan in a sensitive setting for a population of 160,000 people that also maximises the tourist potential of the city. The underutilised Jiulong river loops around the site creating great potential for water based recreation.
The area is famous for its jade and tea production, forest bamboo stands and the ancient ’Toulou’ or round houses that once contained up to 600 people in one clan. BDP’s Urbanism group was selected for its understanding of Chinese culture, its dynamic and innovative design approach, and experience of large scale complex masterplans.
