Wilkinson Eyre teams up with landscape firm Grant Associates for work
A team led by Grant Associates and featuring Wilkinson Eyre has won an international competition for a new park in China.
The scheme at Tianjin in the north of the country will run across 41ha and is part of the Tianjin Eco-City which is being masterminded by the Chinese and Singapore governments.
The winning team – which also includes environmental consultant Atelier Ten and structural engineer Atelier One – was chosen over rival bids led by SWA Group from San Francisco and Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl of Germany.
The same team carried out work on Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay scheme, which was completed in 2012, and won the following year’s RIBA Lubetkin Prize for best international building. That scheme includes two giant cooled conservatories.
