Furong New Town Waterfront. Guangdong Province PR China.
BMLA was invited by GLA, a Guangzhou landscape practice to take part in a competition to design a 100ha waterfront for a new city near Shoaguang. The project developed a new design process that considered the environmental impact of the construction of the new city. The waterfront became the site of a complex series of remediation measures; swales, wetlands and flooding defences. The urban/architectural programme was formed around the larger environmental structure.
