Shijiazhuang ecological landscape planning and design comprehensive improvement program for the Hutuo River
Lawson, Gill M. (2008) Shijiazhuang ecological landscape planning and design comprehensive improvement program for the Hutuo River. [Design/Architectural Work]
International practice-led design research in landscape architecture has identified water quality and water availability as two of the most important environmental issues in developing countries. China is particularly focused on improving water supplies for its rural and urban populations. However a significant gap in knowledge exists between urban planning and environmental engineering in China as to how to design Chinese public open spaces to reduce water pollution in urban rivers. This project responded to traditional zoning methods in Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, by proposing a range of water sensitive design innovations from lake construction to planting design to modify standardised engineering solutions in a Chinese context.
