Entry Description

This project locates in Zhujiajian island which is to the
south of Mount Putuo (Mount Putuo is one of four sacred
mountains of Buddhism in China).This site covers an area
of nine square kilometers which has many advantages,
including fabulous scenery, age-old Buddhist culture and
convenient transportation. This project raises five core
strategies - Strategy One: interaction of south and north
Putuo. Strategy Two: organize the external and internal
traffic, improve the network of scenic spot and
surrounding area; Strategy Three: ecological pattern;
Strategy Four: combine the temple landscape and
Buddhist mood, inherit the principle of the temple
landscape design; Strategy Five: matching of the project
region. On the basis of relevance of various projects, this
strategy will be helpful to realize rational zoning.
