The International Shopping Plaza Concept Competition (ISPCC), initiated by Wanda Commercial Planning &Research Institute, is an international professional design competition in the field of commercial design. It has been successfully held in both 2015 and 2017, with the world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind serving as the chair of jury for two consecutive times. With forward-seeking competition concept and well-known brand appeal in the commercial field, ISPCC has become a unique brand in the field of commercial space design in China and has won great attention and participation from designers all over the world.
The first competition, with the theme of Commerce Changes Cities aimed to start an exploration of new generation of commercial plazas and ponder on people's lifestyles globally. The second competition focused on people's lives. With the competition theme Commerce Changes Life, designers discussed how commercial plazas should be upgraded and adapted to the new situation and new demands in the era of ‘experience economy’. Former competitions attracted more than 400 outstanding design projects from all over the world, which were indexed into a book for publicity and promoted via the whole media channel, aiming to build an international industrial platform for designers with passion and competency. The platform supports designers who have design dreams with practical actions, and in this way, gradually enhances the influence of Chinese design.
Commerce Shapes Life
To figure out what kind of changes are going on in the world of commercial space and its influence on people's lives, we need to start by understanding the factors that have fundamentally changed our way of life. Facing with the fission-style development of the global Internet, our personal life and social interactions have been increasingly taking place in digital virtual spaces. While ten years ago, it was hard to imagine.
We are in a dramatically-changing world, where the most ingrained habits can be completely transformed in a short period of time. Whether it is the division of physical space or the divisions of labor in the society, almost all clear ‘boundaries’ have become blurred, overlapping and interlaced. Only continuous innovation and transformation can direct us to a feasible future.
Under this rapid-changing circumstance, commercial space, where commercial conducts occur, is also confronting unprecedented opportunities and challenges. As the guide of people’s lifestyle, commercial space is not only the epitome of urban life, but also the bearing of residents' memories, expressing and guiding the aesthetics and demands of the era. How to use innovative design methods to break through the shackles of traditional space design, integrate the original ‘habits’ and ‘attitudes’ that are not intersectional, and create a brand-new experience has become a basic issue that all practitioners need to face and solve.
Will the commercial space of the future become a ‘retail theater’, a huge ‘art Installation’ or an amusement park? Will the commercial experience be changed or even subvert our definition and perception of life itself?
Out of all kinds of imaginations and expectations about the future commercial space, the 3rd ISPCC will continue to focus on the theme of Commerce Shapes Life aiming to attract more designers to build creative commercial spaces by exploring the innovative transformation of commercial public zone in the era of ‘experience economy’. It is expected that under this brand-new era, global designers are able to explore the perfect combination of the three main elements of business, ‘people, goods and space’, and reshape the infinite possibilities of the ecological relationships among the ‘space, retail format and operation’ of the future business with their rigorous and specific designs.
The design competition focuses on the public space of the commercial square, and the design scope (including outdoor public space or not) and area should be defined by yourselves；
2）The design competition does not limit the overall scale of the commercial square, but you need to define the basic massing parameters and find the urban site；
3）The public space of the commercial square should be combined with the following four commercial activities: children's commercial space, cultural and entertainment space, fashion sports space and catering and leisure space (you can refer to the Wanda plaza currently opened); 4）设计应具有创新性，方案应在空间设计上体现出与时代科技、社交体验进行结合，如空间形式及动线特色等。
4）The design should be innovative, and the scheme should be combined with the new technology and social experience in the space design, such as the spatial form and the plan of line of motion.
