Entry Description

This project is in a green axis of CBD zone which is
surrounded by several traditional architectures. In the
meanwhile, this project will play a guidance role in
building a Sponge City which has the functions of water
absorbing, water holding, water purification and water
release.In this case, this project primarily demonstrates
two characteristics, including the integration of ‘Sponge
City’ design, the protection and renewal of existing
architectures. By combining the major landscape axis
and the key points of ‘Sponge City’ construction, taking
the advantages of water absorbing capacity of urban
green vegetation, this project will sharply reduce the
pressure of urban water supply and drainage. At the
same time, this project will also analyze the style and
quality of traditional architectures. With the rational
renovation measure of these architectures and the
integrated design of green axis park, this site will be
transformed into a historic place.
