The Wuxi Vanke TOD is located in Wuxi Binhu District, north to Zhenze Road, south to Guqu Road, east to Nanhu Avenue, and west to Gonghu Avenue. The land is divided into three parts, namely the riverside area, the green axis area, and the residential area.
We hope to build a three-dimensional urban leisure complex with unique ecological technology. The first life-cycle care community that will create a sense of co-prosperity and happiness for citizens will make it a business card for Wuxi and the entire Taihu Lake to display its cultural features.
Leading the Source of Nature and a City of Happiness
As a Sino-Swiss low-carbon eco-city area, we design based on sustainable ecological environment, water resources utilization and green transportation.
The overall design is divided into three major sections along the river, the green axis, and the residential area, which correspond to the cedar valley, the galloping glacier and the forest city. This article focuses on the first two sections.
We designed five parts of landscapes, such as the water show stage, the fir forest waterfall, the colorful canyon, the floating water garden, and the starry lookout. The intention is to create ecological commercial blocks, entrance platforms, fun sinking spaces, purification of wetlands, green axis portals, etc.
Use the upper cover area to design natural water bodies, plant aquatic plants, and purify the water while becoming an ecological habitat for birds, insects, and fish, and create a living environment that coexists with nature.
We set up interesting water show stages, vertical greening, terraced sea of flowers, digital water curtains, watchtowers, curved arch bridges, water islands, commercial exhibitions, star grass steps, wave falling water, interesting installations and other landscape nodes.
The numerical control water show stage, the falling water ladder and the large square combine technology, hydrophilicity, and activities to bring a full sense of happiness to the citizens.
The long sea of flowers combined with metasequoia forests create an ecological environment and bring urban residents a unique experience of being in nature.
In the colorful canyon, you can walk on the pedestrian overpass located in the tree canopy and feel the nature of the tree canopy. You can also accompany children to play the slides embedded in the natural terrain. You can also play in the water and play the perfect combination of nature and human activities.
The floating water garden is an ecological garden floating on the water, and it is also an ecological garden floating in the city. There are unique waterfront landscapes, creatures and more.
A large area of wetlands provides a place for citizens to feel at home. Lively happiness is the keynote of this space. With intelligent fitness equipment, it adds a sense of technology to the feeling of happiness.
We designed four parts of landscapes, such as the sports waterfront, the leisure waterfront, the ecological conservation waterfront, the commercial leisure waterfront, and so on. Create a multi-functional play space, a wild exploration space, a valley wetland space, a stylish entertainment plaza, etc.
Including hydrophilic platform, children’s play facilities, sunny lawns, fitness facilities, wave grass steps, exploring Tingbu, ecological green island, wetland boardwalk, bird watching, Zhufengheyun, Liuyin Lakeside, waterfalls among flowers And other landscape nodes.
Due to some difficult-to-control site factors for this project, Vanke’s owners failed to win this site in the end, making our design only stay at the concept stage, and unfortunately failed to land our beautiful design. At the same time, I also thank the owners for giving us this opportunity to let us play our ideas, and hope that we can work together in the future and bring better project implementation to everyone 团队：沈希，宋玉培，任雪，茹雅丽，周柯涵
