Zaha Hadid Architects has won an international competition to masterplan a science park in Singapore.
The park, pictured right, is to be called the Science Hub. It will eventually house 200,000 people and be a centre for research, development and high-tech start-ups.

The practice beat four firms to be named masterplanner for the 194 ha development. The four were Richard Rogers Partnership, Toyo Ito of Japan, and US firms Gensler and Ellerbe Beckett.

The hub is to be developed by the Jerong Town Corporation, a development arm of the Singapore government. It is part of the government's technological innovation programme, launched in April 1999.
