Zhuhai Floating City

Zhuhai is growing. The callenge now is to make this growth consistent with landscape and waters against the backdrop of clima change. The aim is to minimize the intrusion in nature due to ecological and economical reasons and by doing that to create a high quality of living in the city. The sponge city principle provides a convenient strategy for this purpose. Diverse water systems for the regulation of tides, flooding rives and heavy rains are not only integrated in the city structure, but also utilized to provide various leisure and recreation facilities. In Combination with lokal landscape and water characteristics, the sponge city principles shape a unique cityscape. In order to do that the project develops a city typology and various water front strategies which are transferable and versatile tools for the future urban planning.
