Organized by the city People’s Committee, the competition solicits designs for the area’s central square, a riverside park, and a bridge for walkers.

From preliminary entries, the judges will select six outstanding designs and provide US$20,000 to each designer.

The final winners are expected to be announced in August.

The top entry will get a cash award of $50,000 and the right to negotiate a contract to execute the project.

The next two designs will get $30,000 and $15,000.

The US-owned Sasaki Associates Company is acting as consultant for the contest.

Interested companies can send an email to bqlttqh@hcm.vnn.vn or thuthiemica@gmail.com for more information.
