This year the Architects In Mission (AIM) competition committee is hosting its annual competition for architecture students and young professionals to demonstrate their design skills and abilities. The topic this year is “Post-Industry Age, Green Transformation” where participants will be asked to redesign a Beijing steel factory, the biggest in China.
The site is a part of the Central Business District of China and is heavily influenced by the rapid urbanization. Green Transformation aims to make use of the land resource, spatial quality and other conditions of the old industrial zones, and transform the previous heavy industrial production to new industries with low-pollution and low-energy consumption. It is geared toward the rehabilitation of brownfields, and creating diverse cultural spaces within the developing cities.
