World EXPO 2010 in Shanghai: winning plan


Publication: Weesper Nieuws

The office of Niek Roozen bv has won the design competition for the masterplan of the central park along the river, in the heart of the EXPO. The park will be built on the site of the old harbor area full of steel factories and shipyards. A few of the 60m high cranes will stay and represent the industrial heritage in the park. The key words used to describe the plan are rest, shade and clean air. The Green City philosophy will undoubtedly be applied.
