To attract “fresh blood” of design for the Future City
Focusing on “future” design, the prize is actually born in a land called “the future city of China” – Xiongan New Area, which is a state-level new area of China, 100km from Beijing. It is proposed by the central government of China in 2017 with the vision of relocation of Beijing’s non-capital functions mainly the economic sections and transforming it into a green and innovative city.

The architectural and urban planning firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) thinks 10 key principles matter for a City of Future: ecology, economy, infrastructure, water, waste, food, mobility, culture, energy and livability. Under thorough considerations of the 10 principles, Xiongan New Area is under planning.
Constructing Xiongan New Area is a “one-thousand-year” plan, according to the president Xi Jinping of China. Xiongan is expected to build as the next Shenzhen city, but a lot better. Over one hundred designers and experts around the world were invited to Xiongan to explore and formulate the top-design of Xiongan city. What’s more, an international design award – Goldreed Industrial Design Award – was launched in Xiongan on November 21, 2019, to attract the “fresh blood” of design to Xiongan.
