Jianhu (Jian Lake) is the origin of local Yue civilization. It has witnessed the vitality and development of the city for thousands of years. Sitting at the junction between the Keqiao urban zone and Kuaiji Mountain landscape, it features a unique blended context of “mountain, lake, city and farmland”, and also a number of beautiful humanistic stories. Today, under Keqiao’s development positioning—the “International Textile Capital”, Jianhu is opening up and embracing creativity altogether.
Under the background of a new era, we would like to invite global planners, architects, and designers hereby to submit your “transcending” proposals along the lakeshore, thus creating a revived, prosperous Jianhu that transcends time and space, transcends imagination, carries, and reveals the super Yue culture, and goes beyond it!
