Urban Market / Kohn Pederson Fox

The 2010 AIA New York winners were recently announced (we’ll share the full over view this weekend with you), and this project by Kohn Pedersen Fox received a design award in the Unbuilt category.   Just like the other winning projects, the design showcases New York talent and was chosen for its “design quality, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness and technique.”  The project, entitled Urban Market, is for Tianjin, China.  The urban center is a way to reinvigorate the river banks through new uses, such as cultural institutions.  The hope it that the center will grow to establish “a new identity for the city that links its culture to its historic place of commerce.”
