Huge Urban Park Plans In Guangzhou

American architecture firm Heller Manus has dreamed up this enormous plan for Guangzhou, one of the largest cities in the People's Republic of China.

Their winning design is a masterplan for the southern axis of Guangzhou that covers an enormous 14.78 square kilometers of land that will stretch through the centre of much of Xinjiaozhen incorporating a waterfront at its far southern end and then working its way north.

A substantial amount of parkland is included in the design with one of the center-pieces being the transformation of the undeveloped area immediately south of Donfengcun into a new parkland complete with a pagoda in the middle of it similar in nature to the Temple of Six Banyan Trees.

Tipping a nod towards traditional Chinese culture, the architects have given a number of touches of Lingnan to their designs, an ancient background that dates all the way back to the Middle Kingdom 2,200 years ago.

Elsewhere there will be substantial land clearances, removing old industrial units and warehouses from Xinyucun to Xilu creating a clear green route all the way from the central park to the south.

Perhaps mindful the northern part of Xinjiaozhen is rather more developed than the southern area, the plans are more modest and involve less urban clearances.

Here a central strip of urban park serving as a green artery will stretch all the way from Xinjao South Road to Nongmin New Village in the north culminating with the Guangzhou TV Tower, one of the tallest structures in the world which reaches 610 metres tall at its tip.

It's the sort of thing that perhaps will remind some of the planning of 19th century Paris, complete with the Eiffel Tower at one end of the landscaped Champ de Mars, as well as show the aspirations of the Chinese to make their urban centres 21st century Cities of Light.
