|Abstract: ||China is a country with large populations and limited land resources. Since the last
decade discovering wise ways to sort out such problems is a key issue in land-use
Tianjin Zhongxin Eco-city is adjacent to Bohai Bay,which is an eco-demonstration city
created under the collaboration of China and Singapore. The designated site covers
about 34 km² and is mainly composed of salterns,saline-alkali wastelands and wetlands.
It is expected to be rebuilt as a resource economized,environment friendly and
ecological livable new city.
The first-phase of the scheme is located south of the eco-city, with an area of about 7.8 km²; this area performs as the gateway for the eco-city as well as a prior
comprehensive experimental site.
Consequently,how to reuse wasteland as well as achieve high quantity development
and ecological liveability while favourably interacting with the existing resources will
be the focal point of planning and research.In the design process,existing environments were analyzed first to conserve and reuse large scale wetlands within the designated site. Suitability between botanic planning and the salinate fields was also considered. The planning insisted on a pedestrian-first principle and connected public spaces in different functions creating a green ecological
network. Areas for human activities or planting design would be ensured by wind
environment,sunlight and radiation analysis. Comprehensible consideration of the
project's implementation was taken into account since various projects operate in the same site. Planning guidelines for urban construction land-use aimed at development
from an overall consideration realizing regional strategies.
The ultimate purpose of the design is to maximize the continuous construction of
regional spaces and dynamically balance the ecological integrality as well as meet
