Changchun Wins Architizer A+ Award

We’re delighted to share that our work on the Vanke Changchun Community Sports Complex has been recognized with a Special Mention for the Architizer A+ Awards.

Located in an old, industrial corridor, where a powerplant once stood, the Changchun Community Sports Complex is helping residents—old and new—reimagine life in a changing neighborhood. It’s striking sawtooth form, terracotta panels, and perforated panels create a series of semicylindrical vertical seams, recall the center’s industrial past. The transformed powerplant now houses basketball courts, rock climbing walls, a gym, coffee shop, and ample outdoor recreation amenities like an elevated track and playground.

The A+ Awards celebrates design excellence from the world’s best firms, highlighting the work of pioneering architects and designers as they strive to create architecture that stands the test of time.

Thank you Architizer!
