125.000 m2

The char­ac­ter­is­tics of the exist­ing land­scape of the Wuhan area informed our initial departure. By varying high and low den­si­ties, we are able to cre­ate envi­ron­ments with a clear focus on appear­ance and func­tion. In the developed areas we apply this prin­ci­ple to clearly define pub­lic spaces, like streets and squares. In urban envi­ron­ments a high den­sity is necessary to cre­ate a lively and invit­ing place. This density is balanced in the landscape, which open­s up to the hori­zon. Here peo­ple can feel the magic of nature, reminding them of our mutual depen­dency. We envision all future urban growth based on organic pat­terns. Nature is the driving influence and ori­gin of the plan.

The pro­gram and envi­ron­ment are con­ceived as essential considerations in the park; both compliment the other to benefit the viewier. This inspired us to consider land­scape as a volcano. The activity is concentrated inside the vol­cano, from which it flows outwards towards the subsequent tier, where it increases again.

The pro­gram is spread throughout area, however the varied activities surrounding the buildings are concentrated in these volcanoes. The vis­i­tor per­ceives these places as small towns with an array of build­ings, form­ing streets and squares. Here you can enjoy com­mer­cial and cultural activ­i­ties.
The surrounding park offers a relaxed envi­ron­ment for a walk, or a bike ­tour, and even a swim in the pond. Small scale educa­tional and leisure related agri­cul­tural activ­i­ties are dispersed throughout the park.
The res­i­den­tial vil­las are centered around a com­mon area, with a playground and a pond.
Gen­er­ally the park­ing is housed at the out­side ring of the vol­canos underground.
