Designing an Island


Designing an Island

Moss and Fog

Architects often create presentations and bids for projects, and are pitted against other firms to win the work. But rarely do firms get the chance to design an entire island. There was recently a winner for the South Sea Pearl Eco-Island competition. The entirely new island is to be built in the Chinese Bay of Hainan, and the proposals required housing, hotels, tourist attractions, as well as room for two cruise ships to dock. Take a look at the impressive proposal designs, including the winner, Diller, Scofidio + Benfro. Via Arch Daily, h/t to JM.
