Qian Xi Riverfront Park

62780m²

Xinchang, Zhejiang

2014

This is a riverfront park landscape design implementation in Xinchang, Zhejiang Province, in reaction to ‘Beautify Suburban/Rural Area’ by Central Government, a call/policy anticipating a nation-wide development of landscape system and nature restoration in those under-developed places on countryside. The park locates in adjacency to an existing creek-‘Qianxi’ while a mountain sets background on north of the park. A bridge across the creek is desired as a mandatory element in purpose of connection and a gateway of future tourism development in the mountain. The overall design accentuates 3 aspects: proximity to water; nature integration; landmark establishment. With an amphitheater terrace running along the creek, picturesque views down towards the creek is sharply shaped and multiple space for diverse activities are created along rows of bamboo beds. Design also inserts local planting palette to densify the edge along mountain so that the park reads as part of the mountain, by which Eco system could be extended in future as well. Along on the bridge, we introduce series of observation tower structures coated with red-ish local lava stone to obtain view towards the town. These structures also make statement as landmark for this town. The design is completed Oct 2014 and the park opened to public on March 24 2015.
