Pictures: SOM’s Beijing mega scheme

US giant SOM has won an international competition to design the Beijing Bohai Innovation City master plan, a mixed-use urban district in the Chinese capital.

The firm’s proposal envisages an environmentally-friendly district along the high-speed rail line, linking the national capital to the port city of Tianjin.

The city expansion will deliver 17.6 million m2 of mixed-use development, with a focus on providing a premier headquarters location for advanced industries in the rapidly growing Bohai Rim region.
