Haining | China

birdeye_cover

The location chosen for the Jianshan New City is situated in a breath-taking natural landscape context, between the hills and river. This provides the opportunity for future dwellers of the new city to have physical and visual contact with the largest scale of natural landscape.
The different scales and types of landscape both natural and man-made, together form the landscape framework of the plan.
The primary connections between the hills and the river are formed by four linear parks. Three parks connect into this structure – the central park, the eastern park and the golf park.
The central park is the main meeting space of the city and is organized into two main parts: densely planted outer edge of forest and he inner area, a collage of different
functions that will host a number of different activities and programs.
In the outer part, a web of paths links from the context into the park. In the inner area a large central lake allows visitors direct contact with the water and plays host to a number of water based activities such as fishing, sailing and canoeing. Other areas are dedicated to agriculture, ecology and woodland. There is also a large events space.

The primary connections between the hills and the river are formed by four linear parks. Three parks connect into this structure – the central park, the eastern park and the golf park. A finer grain network of linear green spaces along the canals create additional green pedestrian and cycle connections in the plan A continuous network of tree-lined streets will create quality addresses, and a green, shady and walkable city.
