Guangdong is one of the richest provinces in China. Besides agriculture and marine products, the strong provincial economy is largely based on its light and heavy industries, and a major upgrade of the infrastructure is required to support the continuous growth.
“The increasing urbanisation puts high demands on the infrastructure solutions where functionality, sustainability and aesthetics go hand in hand,” says Lars Hauge, Regional Vice President, COWI.
The ShenZhong Link design was awarded the first prize for its high level of technical excellence and aesthetic appearance.
The jury stated:“The design philosophy of the concept is advanced. The overall design of the link is magnificent, elegant and concise.”
