A PARTNERSHIP between a Beijing-based company and a U.S.-based company won the 1.5-million-yuan (US$184,000) first prize for the design of the Olympic New Town (ONT), a key project of the city's bid for the 2011 Universiade.

The combined team from the Beijing Institute of Architectural Design (BIAD) and U.S.-based CA designers' agency came up with the winning design, authorities announced over the weekend.

However, authorities said the winning design was not perfect and that they would combine the designs submitted by two runners-up to achieve the final design. The two runners-up were Hong Kong EDAW and a joint venture between U.K.-based ARUP and Denmark-based HLT. The two teams will be awarded 800,000 yuan each.

The only local designer in the final group of five was China State Construction International (Shenzhen) Design Consultant Co. Ltd.

Shenzhen will also build 12 new stadiums and gyms in Futian, Nanshan and Luohu districts to bolster its bid for the 26th Universiade. The winning city will be announced in 2007.

The ONT, to be built in Longgang District, will cover 13.4 square kilometers, including a 6.5-square-kilometer Olympic Park. The park will house a stadium, a gym and a swimming center that can accommodate as many as 60,000, 18,000 and 10,000 people respectively. An athletes' village for 10,000 people will also be set up in the park.
