Recently, Guangzhou’s Nansha District starts a design competition and invites architects worldwide to design its new hospital project, the First Affiliated Hospital (Nansha Hospital), Sun Yat-sen University. The winner will gain the design contract with the project while the top 9 participants will also be awarded 500 thousand to 2 million yuan (about US$ 79 thousand- 316 thousand).
The hospital project is jointly developed by Guangzhou’s sub-center, Nansha, and the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University which is a 3A hospital (the top level in China), aiming to improve the district’s medical service, medical research and training abilities. Once completed, it will be a medical research center in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
