Award Winning Ecologically Sustainable Waterfront Planning & Design

In response to the rapid development of Xiamen City in Fujian Province, the Project Team prepared a visionary Master Plan for this waterfront area.  Mixed use residential, commercial and tourism related uses were incorporated into the overall design, which includes some staged island reclamation on the existing salt farm and aquaculture mudflat areas.

This strategy results in a unique and ecologically sustainable model for the development of the area, as well as reaffirming Xiamen’s leading role in environmental conservation, and creation of a quality lifestyle.

This innovative design includes substantial mangrove regeneration areas and also integrates well with the existing fishing village and other land uses. As a result, this Master Plan with an increased amount of waterfront land is envisaged to bring about environmental, social as well as economic benefits for Xiamen as a whole.  SECOND PRIZE AWARDED
