The land of Taizhou is wide and the sea is boundless. The clouds and water are extended and the islands are evergreen.
Taizhou is surrounded by mountains and the sea. Shifeng River and Yong'an River originate from Tiantai and Xianju, merging at Linhai to form the Lingjiang River, which has nurtured the culture of a thousand-year capital city. Taizhou is such a city that has the natural resources of the mountains and the sea.
The convergence of river brings the convergence of culture, and also shapes the spirit of harmony, openness and innovation, and future-oriented of Taizhou people. In ancient times, the culture of harmony was born here and went to the world. In modern times, the share cooperative economy originated here and the private economy of China was born here. Now, the integration of high-speed rail brings the gathering of resource elements and the private economy will continue to create new glories.
In the context of the new era, we are seeking design proposals for the Sanjiangkou area in Taizhou City from planners, architects and designers around the world, hoping to create a showcase for Taizhou's industry, culture and ecology, an industrial and economic energy field to empower the development of private economy, and a new urban space gathering point to carry the outward expansion of the city center of Taizhou.

3｜项目背景 Project Background
The Sanjiangkou area, where three rivers meet and three mountains embrace each other, is the center of natural geography. As early as the Ming and Qing dynasties, commerce gathered and flourished here. In modern times, Jiangkou Port was built and shipping was pivoted and flourished here. Nowadays, private enterprises are flourishing here. In the future, Sanjiangkou area, which is at the junction of three districts, will take advantage of the integration of Taizhou Railway Station and Taizhouxi Railway Station, take over and gather various resource elements, and usher in the opportunity of urban and industrial development in the new era.
The future of the Sanjiangkou area will not only be the confluence of rivers, the convergence of cultures, and the integration of life and production, but also the exploration of the future city, the development model of industry, humanities, and ecological synergy by planners, architects, and designers.
