Three Aedas projects win 2020 International Architecture Awards

2020 International Architecture Awards has awarded three Aedas-designed projects accolades for their design excellence and innovation. They are:

1. Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port Passenger Clearance Building, Hong Kong, China (by Chairman and Global Design Principal Keith Griffiths, Global Design Principal Max Connop and Richard Paul, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (Joint Venture Designer))
The Passenger Clearance Building (PCB) of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port houses the customs and immigration facilities for travellers leaving and entering Hong Kong via the bridge. The bridge links Zhuhai and Macau to Hong Kong and provides a strategic southern connection between the 11 cities of the Greater Bay Area Megapolis by linking the West and East Pearl River Delta in China. Fostering the flow of people, goods, capital and information it will improve the overall connectivity of the Greater Bay Area and greatly reduce travelling time between Greater Bay Area cities.

2. Hong Kong West Kowloon Station, Hong Kong, China (by Aedas)
The Hong Kong West Kowloon Station sits on a prominent site immediately adjacent to Victoria Harbour and serves as a gateway to Hong Kong as well as a terminus to the high-speed rail network of Mainland China. The organization of the design was inspired by the idea of forces converging on Hong Kong - wind, pedestrian flows, traffic, and tracks coming into the station. In this project, architecture and engineering are seamlessly fused. The station will no doubt become an integral part of Hong Kong, profoundly transforming the way people interact with the city.

3. Zhengzhou Cultural District, Zhengzhou, China (by Aedas)
The Zhengzhou Cultural District adopts the idea of rising up in steps, following the natural topography of traditional local monastery due to the height difference across the site. The big massing of the exhibition hall and library act as a gateway to the centrally located civic node of the site. Ramps and stairs lead the pedestrian flow to travel height of 30 meters from the waterfront plaza next to the river to the upper street plaza through canyons of spaces. The canyons induce natural ventilation by sea and land breeze mechanism.

The International Architecture Awards are the highest and most prestigious distinguished building award programme that honours new and cutting-edge design. This annual programme, organised by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, The European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and Metropolitan Arts Press, also promotes international architecture and design to the global public audience. The programme has become the most significant and most comprehensive distinguished international awards programme in the world. The award winners were selected by a distinguished group of American architects and educators.
