PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Cloud Paradise in Luxe lakes Eco-city is a linear green riverfront between the city roads and the lake, covering about 25,000 m², with near 450 m length (east-west), near 50 m width (north-south), and 500.5 m the highest elevation of the site. The width of the adjacent lake is about 55m and its water level elevation is 462.5 m. In order to preserve the firefighting accesses and the original docks, all the modifications are carried out on the basis of the existing revetments.

After understanding the history of man-water relationship and community status quo, the design team positioned the site as an children’s playground with the purpose of edutainment, an open-air water experience pavilion, which is inspired by various forms and features of water to design landscape spaces and nodes, so that people better understand the importance of water to life and reshape the relationship between human and water.

Based on the project positioning and actual condition of the site, the design team streamlines the activity nodes, and organically combined different activities with environmental education to form a series of unique and recognizable landscapes.
