Use of 经 in a specific sentence.

Good afternoon. Can anyone explain to me the meaning of the character 经 in the sentence that follows, please? This is it: 它的设计方案,是经全球设计竞赛产生的“水的立方”([H2O]3)方案。I have looked it up and I cannot find any meaning that fits the sentence. The text is taken from Baidu; here's the link in case somebody wants to check the context: https://baike.baidu.com/item/%E5%9B%BD%E5%AE%B6%E6%B8%B8%E6%B3%B3%E4%B8%AD%E5%BF%83 Thanks a lot to anyone who answers. Regards.

It's in the sense of "to pass through", so here in context to have "undergone" a competitive process or more simply, "via" -   translating over-literally, its design is one produced through a worldwide competition. More fluidly, "the design is that for the Water Cube, the winner of an international design competition." There's other ways to do it that stay reasonably faithful depending on where you think the emphasis is - the 产生 aspect or the global nature of the competition etc etc.
