Overall Renovation of Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace
Конкурс проводится в связи с предстоящей полной реновацией Дворца культуры трудящихся Шэньчжэня, построенного в середине прошлого столетия. В связи с быстрым развитием города, существующее здание с каждым годом устаревает не только в физическом, но и в функциональном плане, поэтому нуждается в модернизации с учетом запросов сегодняшнего дня. С победителем планируется заключить контракт на дальнейшую разработку проекта.
In response to the work plan of the municipal Party committee and the municipal government, based on the functional positioning and future development demands of Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace, the International Bidding of Architectural SD for Overall Renovation of Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace is officially launched. It is hosted by Shenzhen Federation of Trade Unions and Luohu District Government, Shenzhen and organized by Shenzhen Metro Group Co., Ltd., in a bid to seek the most creative proposal from all over the world.
Shenzhen Working People’s Cultural Palace (Shenzhen Staff Service Center) (“the Cultural Palace”) is a public welfare institution affiliated to Shenzhen Federation of Trade Unions. It was built in 1953 in the name of Bao’an County Worker’s Cultural Palace. It is located in the core area of Luohu District adjacent to Dongmen Commercial Pedestrian Street, a key section covered by Guangzhou-Shenzhen Intercity Railway. On the south of the Cultural Palace, there is a metro station for interchange between three metro lines, serving as a citywide passenger transport hub. The main function of the Cultural Palace is to offer culture, art and vocational training and accommodate recreational and sports activities for the working people. It is a front of Shenzhen Federation of Trade Unions to serve and a bridge linking closely with the working people.
With the rapid development of the city, the existing building of the Cultural Palace can no longer keep up with people’s increasing demands for recreational and sports activities. This makes it extremely urgent to renovate and upgrading the building. The new Cultural Palace will be a complex cultural landmark integrating culture, art, and public and supporting services. It will promote the upgrading and transformation of Dongmen Commercial Circle and create a fashion art center with regional influence in the future.
The Project neighbors People’s Park on the north, Shen Nan Da Dao on the south, the Guesthouse and Dongmen Commercial Circle on the east, and Buji River on the west. It enjoys prominent location and pleasant natural environment. The site area of the Project is nearly 60,000m2, while its existing GFA is about 26,900m2.
The bidding will involve three stages: prequalification, schematic design, and bid finalization. Stage 1 (prequalification) involves urban design research and architectural conceptual design. The scope of urban design research covers the Cultural Palace, the Guesthouse, Dongmen Commercial Circle, Buji River and the residential district on the west of Buji River (see Fig. 1 for the scope of urban design research and Design Brief for the specific site scope).
