French firm Wins Design Contest for New HCMC Urban Area Landmarks

New buildings at Thu Thiem new urban area
A French firm has won the top prize for “unique architectural ideas” to develop three landmark areas in the proposed Thu Thiem New Urban Area in Ho Chi Minh City.

Deso Company was followed by Hagel Company (Switzerland) and Edaw Company (Hong Kong) in second and third places for designs to develop the center square, a riverside park, and a bridge over the Sai Gon River to District 7.



City leaders, including Party chief Le Thanh Hai, People’s Committee chairman Le Hoang Quan, People’s Council chairwoman Pham Phuong Thao, and of Fatherland Front Committee chairman Tran Thanh Long, met the Thu Thiem management board Wednesday to discuss the design ideas.


Approving the jury’s decision, Mr Quan said the management board should convene a group of experts to carefully study the three designs.
