Thu Thiem New Urban Area’s management has announced that an international contest to design infrastructure for this Ho Chi Minh City suburb will be launched next Monday.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
The 657-hectare township in the Thu Thiem Peninsula in District 2 was approved last year at a cost of $10 billion.
Upon completion in 2025, it will have residential areas, financial and commercial centers, an international exhibition and convention complex, and other facilities.
