The traditional lifestyle of Chengdu reinterpreted in future public space
Chengdu Tianfu New Town Landscape Design
Location: Chengdu, China
Client: Chengdu Tianfu Metro City Development Ltd.
Program: Landscape design and urban design guidelines for public space for a 21 ha public park.
Chengdu is a fast-developing city in south-western China with a rich history and strong local character. MLA+ had the opportunity to extrapolate those qualities and bring them into a modern form for the international design competition for a landscape corridor in the brand-new district of Chengdu, where the ambitious central business district will be built.
The proposal extracts the spatial and natural characters from indigenous places within the city, and re-applies them to a public space with new functionality.
