Handan / 1st Prize

The third Hebei International Urban Planning and Design Competition

DPA has been designated winner of the international competition for the design of the "Hangang District" in the city of Handan, China. Famous for its historical and cultural heritage, the city of Handan is also a major center of Chinese industry, under the influence of the Hansteel steel group, which has deeply marked its territory. The important industrial site of Hansteel, originally located in a remote suburb, is now close to the center of Handan, and its redevelopment, the main theme of this competition, is now to be seen as a driving force for the city's urban development.

Winning project / The Third Hebei International Urban Planning and Design Competition

DPA is the winner of the Hangang District Urban Design International Master Competition (City of Handan, China)

The study carried out by DPA on Hangang district, in the city of Handan (Hebei Province), develops an adapted and flexible urban development strategy. The area represents about a quarter of the city's territory, composed of very heterogeneous built elements, an important industrial heritage, and a great variety of landscapes. The industrial heritage formed the starting point for the new development of the Hangang district, as did the geographical reality of the site, which guided its design process and organization. The proposal defines a set of tools, offering the necessary flexibility for its future adaptation and the development of mixed and varied architectures.
