Announcement of International Competition for Urban Design of the Beautiful Fishing Port and Vibrant Harbour in Daishan Island
Urban Planning Society of China （undertaker） is commissioned by Daishan Natural Resources and Planning Bureau and Daishan Central Fishing Port Development Corporation （organizer） jointly to organize this open international competition activity for the Urban Design of the Beautiful Fishing Port and Vibrant Harbour in Daishan Island. The relevant matters are hereby announced as follows:
Daishan County is subordinated to Zhoushan City and is an important part of the Zhoushan Archipelago New Area. It is an important marine economy demonstration area in the Yangtze River Delta and an ecological liveable island tourist city. The county is made up of 379 islands.
The Central Fishing Port Area of Gaoting is an important gateway of Daishan with its unique geographical location and cultural connotation. It is backed by the old city area that integrates life, production, leisure, tourism, and comprehensive services; and it faces the beautiful bay and the southern islands. The area has a superior geographical location, coastline to be well shaped and developed, and has a certain business and service foundation. In 1993, the County Party Committee and County Government listed the construction of Gaoting Central Fishing Port as one of the “Eight Great Projects to Revive Daishan”. In more than 20 years, it has completed the gorgeous turn from a fishing village and small port to a national central fishing port, and has become a unique “city name card” of Daishan County.
However, with the development of the fishery economy, the harbour presents problems such as chaotic coastline functions, poor environmental quality, single supporting facilities, lack of service functions, dull architectural style along the coast, lack of characteristics, and lack of public activity space, which do not match the development goal of a comprehensive waterfront area with high-quality life, tourism and commercial functions.
In order to revive the production, leisure, sightseeing, social, and economic activity centre functions of the Gaoting Central Fishing Port, create an important “city name card” for the Zhoushan Islands and an ideal destination for island tourism and leisure in the Yangtze River Delta, drive the local economy and urban development, open up ideas and draw on successful coastal planning and design experience at home and abroad, the international competition activity for the Urban Design of the Beautiful Fishing Port and Vibrant Harbour in Daishan Island is now held to seek high-quality operable design schemes with rich local island characteristics and cultural connotation.
Addressing the existing problems, the planning and design schemes are supposed to propose reasonable and creative approaches to build the Central Fishing Port Area into a recreational landscape belt and commercial service axis with distinctive fishing port characteristics, integrating functions of coastal leisure tourism, characteristic commerce, community service, and fishing port service; and radiate its vitality to the surrounding neighbourhoods, making it one of the most vibrant urban areas in Daishan.
The planning scope of this international competition is divided into two levels, namely overall urban design and landscape design of key sites.
（1） Overall urban design
