Nanjing Dajiaochang Airport Renewal Plan

RUNWAY PARK International Competition for Young Designers



Nanjing Dajiaochang Airport is located in the South New Town District of Nanjing and originally was a training field for battalion in Ming Dynasty. In 1929, the government of Republic of China built an airport and made it a national air force base. Although the Dajiaochang Airport which has witnessed the transformation of modern China was officially closed in 2015, its story is expected to be continued. The master planning of Nanjing South New Town District proposed an idea of an airfield runway park, open to the public to showcase the past, the present and the future of Nanjing, inviting an inclusive participation from citizens.

The urban public space—no longer bound by the over-simplified functionalist notions of connectivity—can create a field of experience which is multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary. Based on the Nanjing Dajiaochang Airport Runway Park in the South New Town which is of both historic and modern significance, the first “Nanjing Dajiaochang Airport Renewal Plan – RUNWAY PARK International Design Competition for Young Designers” focuses on the cultural, functional and representative features of public space. This competition is a global call open to young designers, artists, teachers and students (people from all of those groups are required below 40-year-old) majoring in urban planning, architecture design, landscape design, and art design, seeking creative renewal proposals for urban public space which could offer a new perspective, new stage and new focal point to enrich daily life and stimulate a discussion about the core value of public space – a totally immersed and shared experience.
