Taiwan Water Resources Agency is hosting the first international competition for combining hydraulic engineering, resilience planning and space aesthetics in Taiwan.
Hoowave Resilient Township and Waterfront Landscape Design International Competition intends to break through traditional river engineering design, introduce innovative ideas, and hope to establish a demonstration model of river design aesthetics through the perspective of resilient planning, which includes a design blueprint for the overall concept, and integrate existing cultural resources.
The total prize is NT$3,000,000.
The competition is hosted in order to cooperate with local urban development, continue the historical and cultural context of the sugar industry, create a vision of waterfront stitching that integrates “water and safety”, “water and environment” and “water and culture”, inject new energy into Huwei Town, and create a unique Charming waterfront resilient town with charming riverfronts.
By breaking through the traditional thinking of watercourse management, this project intends to solve local problems or regional development bottlenecks relating to water by design thinking and design innovation. It also attempts to build a resilient city that co-exists and creates with water, integrating “water and safety”, “water and environment” as well as “water and culture”, and an aesthetic paradigm of surrounding areas of rivers to promote the riverbank stitching development vision of Taiwan.
Domestic and foreign professional designers of water conservancy, landscape, architecture, civil engineering, and planning, are invited to participate.
