Architects In Mission (AIM) Competition is organized by AIM competition committee, supported by Zeybekoglu and Associates (ZNA).

This year’s competition seeks to promote a sense of mission among young architects with a focus towards addressing societal issues through the thoughtful application of public service. Following in the footsteps of past AIM topics, the Beijing CBD District Development and the Shougang Relocation Transformation, we have now set our sights upon the eastern gate of China: Shengsi Islands.

Over the course of this society’s development, the unique fi shing village, its products, and its lifestyle, represent a cultural resource that cannot be replicated. With the premise of helping the local population of the Shengsi Islands integrate into modern life, how can the ecology and residential environment of this archipelago be protected? Guiding the island villages toward a diversifi ed economy through sustainable tourism development is our primary focus.
