Wilson Architects win competition for New Development in China


Cork-based architecture firm, Wilson Architecture, has beaten stiff European and international competition to land the tender to design a major new twin-tower 40-floor mixed-use development to be built in the north-eastern Chinese city of Dalian.

The entire mixed-use development consists of 120,000 square metres of building area, with one 40-floor tower accommodating 1,000 residents and the second tower home to 3,500 office workers. The structures are quite likely the two tallest buildings ever designed by an Irish architecture firm.

The new project marks Wilson’s most ambitious project to date in China and saw the Irish company beat French, Austrian and US-based architectural practices to be selected as winning design.
