Jianianhua Building

Honor Award
Jianianhua Building, Chongqing Financial Street Real Estate Co., Ltd.,  Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

This new mixed-use retail and office complex is in the heart of a port city in southwest China. As part of a redevelopment master plan, the city commissioned the design of a central park and plaza, to be anchored by the Jianianhua building. To counteract the grayness of the region and respond to the intense visual activity of the city center, the building elevates the potential of environmental graphics as civic art form.

Mellon Town Residential Lobby

Jury Award
Mellon Town Residential Lobby, Gemdale Corp., One Plus Partnership

In a high-rise apartment building in Shenzhen, China, the lobby is an important buffer zone between the outside world and the interior, and also sets the tone for the design style within.

One Plus Partnership Ltd. envisioned the lobby of the Mellon Town building as a container for the spirit of Chinese culture. The lobby evokes bamboo, that ubiquitous icon of Chinese culture, with a dramatically green palette, flooring, lighting, and residents’ mailboxes. The design team also used the green/bamboo theme to stimulate thought about sustainability and green design.
