The Jinghe New City Culture & Art Center Project is located to the north of Binhe 1st Road in Jinghe New City, east of Huanhu Road, south of Hubin 4th Road, and west of Jinghe 7th Street. With Jinghe Avenue as the boundary, it is divided into north-south plots. The plot to the north of Jinghe Avenue is the land JG04-32B for Phase I, and the plot to the south is the land JG04-128 for Phase II.
Planning indicators for Phase I land JG04-32B: The land area is about 8802 square meters (about 13.20mu), the land is used for cultural facilities (A2), the tentative FAR is 1.3 (the vertical design takes 5m above the ground as ±0, the space at 0-5m is taken as the underground space, where parking, civil air defense and other facilities are not included into FAR calculation, while commercial and other operating facilities are included into FAR calculation), and the building density is less than or equal to 40% (calculated at an elevation of more than 5m, which is defined by ±0). Greenage is greater than or equal to 35%.
The indicators for land surrounding Phase I land JG04-32B:
Land JG04-32A: The land is commercial land (B1). Planning indicators at 0-5m: FAR≤0.7, building density≤50% (the vertical design takes 5m above the ground as ±0, the spaces at 0-5m can be used for parking, civil air defense and other facilities, which are not included into FAR calculation, while commercial and other operating facilities are included into FAR calculation), greenage≥25%; planning indicators above 5m: FAR≤0.1, greenage≥75%. The overall FAR of B1 commercial land is 1.2. The reserve for future stage will be considered.
Land JG04-32C: The land is used as public green land (G1), FAR≤0.1, and greenage ≥75%.
Planning indicators for Phase II land JG04-128: The land area is about 12271 square meters (about 18.40mu), the land is used for cultural facilities (A2), the tentative FAR is 1.2 (the vertical design takes 5m above the ground as ±0, the space at 0-5m is taken as the underground space, where parking, equipment and other facilities are not included into FAR calculation, while commercial and other operating facilities are included into FAR calculation), and the building density is less than or equal to 40%. Greenage is greater than or equal to 35%.
Indicators of land surrounding Phase II land JG04-128:
Land JG04-127-1: The land is used as public green land (G1), FAR≤0.1, and greenage≥75%.
Land JG04-127-2: The land is used as public green land (B1). Planning indicators at 0-5m: FAR≤0.7, building density≤50% (the vertical design takes 5m above the ground as ±0, the spaces at 0-5m can be used for parking, civil air defense and other facilities, which are not included into FAR calculation, while commercial and other operating facilities are included into FAR calculation), greenage≥25%; planning indicators above 5m: FAR≤0.1, greenage≥75%.
Overall design requirements:
1. Three-dimensional traffic connection of the plots on the north and south sides of Jinghe Avenue will be considered, with clear height no less than 5.5m;
2. The scheme is required to have unified design, with phased implementation;
3. Design parameters shall be within the final statutory planning conditions.
Main programs of the Culture & Art Center include library, culture & art center, cinema, music, dancing, traditional drama performance, modern drama, calligraphy and painting art exhibition and other leisure, catering and recreational supporting facilities.
Key design scope: The main design scope of the competition is the architectural and landscape design of two A2 lands of Phase I JG04-32B and Phase II JG04-128.
Conceptual design scope: In order to build the Culture & Art Center as a whole and form an overall linkage, the design is required to provide conceptual proposals for the land of JG04-32A, JG04-127 and JG04-32C and landscape cross-street overpass of Jinghe Avenue.

1st stage - prequalification
The Host will set up a prequalification committee and conduct a comprehensive review of the prequalification application documents submitted by the applicants. The review content includes the industry reputation of the applicant, project performance, awards and the proposed team in the project. The prequalification committee selects 3 shortlisted agencies through open ballot (eliminated round by round) to enter the second stage. At the same time, 2 alternative participating agencies (with ranking) are selected, and the alternative agencies will be substituted in order when the shortlisted agencies withdraw.
2nd stage – design competition
The 3 shortlisted agencies will submit valid deliverables that meet the requirements of Design Brief. The scheme review committee adopts an open-ballot voting method (round-by-round elimination) to rank the three schemes and put forward optimization suggestions on the first-place scheme. The first place is the winner of this project and will be awarded with the subsequent project development contract, and the second and third places will receive corresponding bonuses respectively.
Competition Schedule (Tentative)
Note: All the time mentioned is Beijing time. The Host reserves the right to adjust the schedule. In case of schedule adjustment, the Host will notify the participants via email.

The relevant payment formalities will be processed after the results of the competition are announced. The templates of subsequent project development contract and bonus payment agreement will be provided for the shortlisted participants together with the Design Brief at the second stage.
9.4 If the participant attends this competition in the name of a consortium, the organizer will sign the payment agreement or contract with consortium members. If a foreign design agency cannot collect RMB via its account, it can authorize a legitimate and independent legal entity in China to collect payments on behalf.
