Stage 1 of the Yueyang Urban Water System Project: Landscape planning and design of Wangjia River
Lawson, Gill M. (2009) Stage 1 of the Yueyang Urban Water System Project: Landscape planning and design of Wangjia River. [Design/Architectural Work]
Chinese landscape architects are largely focused on objective practical solutions to environmental problems. In the West, theoretical landscape knowledge is largely conceptual and abstract. This research debated how Australian ecological concepts could or should be transposed to Chinese landscapes. This project responded to severe water and soil pollution issues in the estuarine and riparian zones of rivers flowing into Dongting Lake, in Yueyang City, Hunan Province. This work proposed a range of waterfront design innovations that challenged the notion of corridor as habitat, filter, barrier and conduit in a Chinese riparian context.
