Reappearance of Blue and Green

Based on the thorough research and site investigation, the project focused on the VICs (Villages In the City) and water in the Guangzhou city.

The design started with a village named Lijiao, and it is seen as an opportunity to express the development under multiple drives other than economy only. The proposal stands on the deep consideration of history, culture, urban context, water management, vegetation, economy, and so on. Practical request and ideal situation are considered and merged, in which way the project has been endowed with a certain degree of feasibility. Through the systemic design of both the whole site and individual systems, the proposal will reduce the risk of urban flooding, improve the ecosystem, provide qualified outdoor space, restore the valuable pattern, and more importantly, bring an alternative to the methodology of transformation of VICs.
