2005 Honouable Mention

Pingjiang Historic Block

Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Jury Citation

The revitalization of Pingjiang Historic Block is a commendable example of urban conservation and rehabilitation that is in line with national and international conservation guidelines. The careful and sensitive restoration, through the retention of both the original functions as well as the inhabitants, has ensured historic continuity in this community warranting long-term sustainability. This, together with a very systematic approach and good craftsmanship, has established a new benchmark for holistic urban conservation in Suzhou with potential replicative effects for other cities in China and, indeed, the region.
