Conceptual Landscape Design for the Pazhou West E-Commerce District

Guangzhou, China

Ai +Architecture LLC provided an open space framework and conceptual landscape design for public spaces within the 14 block E-Commerce District of the Pazhou West Technology area on Pazhou Island in Guangzhou, China. The design addresses issues of identity, continuity, connectivity, microclimate response and green infrastructure initiatives within a study of streetscape, plazas and parks, creating an attractive, comfortable and dynamic environment for the people who work and live in this fast developing, high-tech district.

Focus areas of the landscape design include the Gateway Park, the Central Plaza, the Sports Park, the “3D” Park – an expansive elevated deck providing open space amenities and pedestrian connection to the Pearl River, and improvements along the Modiesha Canal, adding a valuable open space amenity to this key component of the district’s stormwater management infrastructure
