The Vietnam Association of Architects has launched two architectural design contests for the commercial centre complex and the riverside landscape of the first phase of Cai Gia - Cat Ba Tourist Urban Area (Cat Ba Amatina).

“The contest to design the commercial centre complex is only for professional and experienced architects while the riverside landscape design contest is for 3rd & 4th year architecture students. Both of the two contests are only for Vietnamese architects to create a professional playing field for architectural innovators in Viet Nam,” said Chairman of Vietnam Association of Architects Phan Dang Son.

Design requirements for the commercial centre complex must be a unique and creative architectural work, creating a highlight for the architectural landscape of Cat Ba Town in Cat Ba Island, Cat Hai District, Hai Phong City.

In addition, the contest category for the pedestrian street along both sides of the river should ensure a green living environment for urban residents and an impressive experience for visitors at the Cat Ba Amatina Tourism and Urban Area.

The two contests will run from March 16 to May 16 and the result is expected to be announced later in May. The project investor, Vinaconex Tourism Development and Investment Joint Stock Company (Vinaconex - ITC), will select the best projects for official implementation. — VNS
