Recently, Guangzhou (Nansha) Children's Palace, a design project completed by China Southwest Architectural Design and Research Institute Corp. Ltd (hereinafter referred to as "CSWADI"), won the 2020/2021 Asia Design Award (hereinafter referred to as "ADA").
ADA is hosted by the Asia Architecture and Urbanism Alliance. With the theme of "Sociology of Space", the 2020/2021 ADA was designed to promote the thinking and practice of helping design get rid of its development dilemma and explore an appropriate path.
With a total floor area of 51,750 square meters, Guangzhou (Nansha) Children's Palace is located in Nansha District, Guangzhou, and is closely adjacent to Lingshan Island. In 2017, an international call for bids was launched for the construction project of Guangzhou (Nansha) Children's Palace, and CSWADI had successfully won the tender with its design scheme. The project design began in 2017, and the project construction was completed in 2019.
Guangzhou (Nansha) Children's Palace integrates such functions as the youth activity center, education, research and study, cultural and scientific and technological exposition, outdoor training, and international exchanges. It is not only an after-school quality education base for children in Nansha District, but also a base for communication between children in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao region and international children.
