Ramboll, architect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and Hijjas have been selected by the Penang State Government as winners to design the masterplan for the new Penang South Islands (PSI) in Malaysia.
As per Penang State Government, the proposal by the three companies titled ‘BiodiverCity’ supports the Penang 2030 vision clearly focusing on livability, to enhance the quality of life and to boost the economy to increase household income. Most importantly, the design focuses on environmental sustainability for future generations.
The international design competition was conducted by the Penang State Government in January this year to transform the Penang South Islands into a sustainable, global destination.
The new PSI project will be located at the south-end of Penang Island and will include three islands.
