Recently, a farm in a rural area in Southwest China's Chongqing was named as a finalist in this year's World Architecture Festival (WAF) Award, a top global architecture award.

On July 10, WAF — the largest festival for the global community of architects — released a total of 249 finalists in this year's award, and Joybo Farm in Chongqing is among the list.

The nearly-700-hectare-farm is located in Ciyun township in Chongqing's Jiangjin district, where most of its terrain is hilly.

Joybo Farm is actually a sorghum base for brewing Chinese liquor, according to locally based Chinese liquor maker Jiangji Distillery, the developer.

The company said the farm, designed by a local architectural firm, took five years to complete. In addition to a base, it contains cultural forms like a sorghum planting research center and grain exhibition gallery, and commercial forms like an office and tavern. It is said to be an avant-garde practice in the local rural vitalization project, which has attracted a large number of tourists and photographers.

The award will be released in Singapore in December.
