The landscape concept is to make self-sufficient and self-reliant city. This can be achieved by a number of means but primarily the following four pillars will make it a city that people want to invest in and make their own: Eco food production, Water Treatment, Recycling, Renewable Energy.

The proposed design celebrates water in a much more natural and traditional Chinese way, areas of rock pools, naturally meandering paths and plantings creating pockets of spaces and accessible safe areas for children and adults to engages with the water. This by utilising the “sponge city” concept (first pioneered in China) we can ensure the ongoing resilience of the city going forward.
