This project is in a green axis of CBD zone which is surrounded by several traditional architectures. In the meanwhile, this project will play a guidance role in building a Sponge City which has the functions of water absorbing, water holding, water purification and water release.In this case, this project primarily demonstrates two characteristics, including the integration of ‘Sponge City’ design, the protection and renewal of existing architectures. By combining the major landscape axis and the key points of ‘Sponge City’ construction, taking the advantages of water absorbing capacity of urban green vegetation, this project will sharply reduce the pressure of urban water supply and drainage. At the same time, this project will also analyze the style and quality of traditional architectures. With the rational renovation measure of these architectures and the integrated design of green axis park, this site will be transformed into a historic place.
