BOSTON – CRJA-IBI Group has won an award in the Big Urban projects category of the 2014 MIPIM Architectural Review Future Project Awards for their work on the PaoJiang Lake Master Plan.

CRJA-IBI Group worked in partnership with Paul Lukez Architecture to develop a master plan for a new city in the Shaoxing district of China, southwest of Shanghai.

The goal was to develop the Yang Jing Bang Lake area into an amenity rich, multi-use environment. The design concept was based on five prominent elements in Chinese culture: wood, earth, water, fire, and gold. These five areas are linked together along the lake by smaller parks and open spaces to create a jeweled necklace. CRJA-IBI Group’s role was to develop the overall landscape master plan and to help enhance each of the five individual areas.

“The experience was project teaming and project excellence at their best,” said Johnathan Law, Project Manager, and Jeanne Lukenda, Principal in Charge. “Working as landscape architects in full partnership with the architects allowed the team to blend the best of its expertise for a master plan that is innovative in its urban design thinking, creative in its use of the landscape to meaningfully brand the project, and responsible in its commitment to sustainability and livability criteria.”

The MIPIM Architectural Review Future Projects Awards celebrate excellence in unbuilt or incomplete projects spanning 12 categories. The awards take place at MIPIM, the international property market, held every year in Cannes.
