Wujiang East Lake Tai Ecological Tourism Resort has been a real challenge for the design process in many ways.
The establishment of a future landmark in the southeast of Jiangsu Province, that will host almost 500,000 visitors annually, becoming the Most Ecological Charm in Lakeside of Lake Tai, has been our focus point for our design choices.
Proper planning, engineering, and management for sustainable pocket beaches -public and private sand-filled beach cells- has been one of our priorities, since they can assure a long- term coastal stability and a high quality coastal environment.
High quality native plant communities will attract new flora and fauna to the area, providing them with shelter, food, and breeding grounds. Increasing biodiversity would support a number of natural ecosystem processes and services like air quality, climate control, water purification, pollination, and aesthetic appeal.
Parameters such as functionality, leisure and carefree outdoor activities and interactive participation will play a crucial role to enrich local tourism industry.
Accessibility will improve local transportation, especially walking.
Eco-friendly lighting will add safety and lead the way towards hidden treasures, such as open-air art pavilions, pathways and stand-points viewing the open horizon. Void and dense areas will complete one another in order to add a strong sense of identity. Source by LandmArch.
