Project Suzhou Creek

Landscape Design Studio 4 (2014-15)


Suzhou Creek, also known as Wusong River, has historically served as an important waterway throughout the different periods of Shanghai. This studio aimed to re-examine the current riverfront development of the Suzhou Creek and to discover its contemporary role as an instance of revitalized natural infrastructure in the urban core of the city. Utilizing landscape strategies at multiple scales, students were tasked with developing an urban complex that fosters creative industries together with ecological restoration. Students engaged in research and analysis in the first half of the semester which culminated in an urban design project in the latter half in three strategic locations along Suzhou Creek.
