Suzhou Cangjie Retail Village 


“The renewal development has reimagined how a retail destination can be built into the historic context of the neighbourhood and being exclusive to Suzhou. The essence of Suzhou has been translated with a modern design approach, making it a place to captivate the younger generations. The gently pitched roofs carry on the culture heritage of antient Suzhou, while the weaving and texture of the traditional silk are reinterpreted as textured surfaces creating a flexible facade module that maintains a relationship with the past.”  

– Jury Citation

“Good design not only delights our eyes, but also seeks innovative solutions to the various complex problems we face today.”
