The International Urban Furniture Exhibition Shanghai 2020 presents the ‘AHO Team’ project

The International Urban Furniture Exhibition Shanghai 2020 presents the ‘AHO Team’ project

The design project for Xiongan New City Urban Facilities by ‘AHO TEAM’ is included in the International Urban Furniture Exhibition, which opened 25 November in Shanghai. The project won the third prize in May 2020 in the international competition, organized by Hebel Xiongan New Area Authorities and CAFA - Central Academy of Fine Arts from Beijing. 

The architects of ‘AHO TEAM’ are Neven Mikac Fuchs, Pascal Flammer, Thomas McQuillan, Aleksandra Ognjanov, Giacomo Pelizzari, Chris Johan Engh, Aleksandra Basic, Siri Merete Birkeland, Stine Mari Gallefoss and Ted Wikborg Wiese.

The vision of Xiongan urban furniture was based on the idea of social sculptures with strong identity, sustainably integrating human, technical and productive resources. The social sculptures connect people and urban community, while creating outdoor public comfort. They operate either as small public spaces where form and material provide comfortable environment for everyday life, or as objects that organize larger urban landscapes.
