KAMJZ have unveiled their proposal for the UIA’s MOLEWA (Mount Lu Estate of World Architecture) competition, which tasked participants with designing several cultural and commercial complexes near one of the world’s largest flower theme parks in Ruichang, China. Titled Ruichang Flower Market, KAMJZ's design contemplates a series of shopping streets with high-end, as well as more vernacular shopping spaces, in particular a specialty area carrying flowers grown in the neighboring Flower Theme Park, traditional crafts, and souvenirs. Their design seeks "to connect the core of the Molewa area with the Flower Garden theme and at the same time create a modern sustainable city center which is deeply connected with Chinese culture, making architecture and the city a tourist destination of it's own. As a result a vibrant town centre would be created which provides a neighborhood feeling and showcases a practical, green sustainable approach."
