Progetto CMR is proud to announce that its “Manjiangwan Planning Design” project in Jilin province won the Golden Award for Planning at the 15th Chinese Habitat Classic Architectural Planning & Design Program Award Contest.

The award, organized by Architectural Society of China and supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MoHURD), is the most authoritative contest in the real estate industry in China. The contest has been successfully held for 15 years, selecting and promoting the best practices in the fields of architecture and design, providing demonstrations for the sustainable urban-rural development in China.

The award ceremony, joined by renowned experts in the architectural field and more than 300 representatives from design firms and institutes, was held on Nov 7 in Beijing. Patrizio Tonini, Design Director and Senior Associate of Progetto CMR, received the award from Mr. Che Shujian, former Director of the General Office of MoHURD and Special Delegate of the State Council. Pasqualino Tomassi, Project Architect of Progetto CMR, delivered a speech at the award ceremony, sharing with the audience the main ideas behind the Manjiangwan Planning Design project.

The project aims to design the first eco-village of the area, fully integrated with the surrounding natural context. Local context has a key role in the design and all design solutions aim at enhancing and further beautifying the landscape that surrounds the island where the project is located.

The village, combining the traditional architectural principles of small mountain villages with local features, will provide a balanced mix of functions, from leisure facilities and activities to hospitality and retail, to boost the touristic attractiveness of the area.

Local environment, social and traditional activities have been enhanced and promoted. The attention to the traditional context does not mean excluding the contemporary dimension. The village will be kept alive through activities and facilities planned to give a new life to the village, targeting the needs of the user who looks for a new, contemporary and captivating experience.

Advanced and sustainable technologies will be used to make the place fully enjoyable, a place that will be alive all year around.
