International Landscape Design Competition

TOWNLAND participated in the International Landscape Design Competition for Shangfang Mountain Forest Botanical Garden, Zoo and Amusement Park in association with Suzhou Zhuyuan Landscape Planning & Design Co Ltd. For the supporting Commercial Development located along the waterfront a building form was chosen reminiscent of a typical Yangtze River Delta Watertown. The design for the Botanical Gardens is inspired by the setting of the nearby natural forest park and focuses on the display of Suzhou's indigenous plant species. The Botanical Garden included a Miniature Garden Museum, a large Ornamental Greenhouse & Scientific Research Centre, Garden Flower Research and Cultivation Areas and Cultural Exhibition Areas. The World Class Zoo was designed around a desire to recreate the natural habitat for the variety of animals with barrier free vision into the enclosures. For the Amusement Park showcasing diverse animal and plant sight-seeing content the design focus was also on an ecological, novel and participatory approach for the visitors.
