Wuxi Li Lake Parklands

Location: Wuxi, China
Client: Wuxi New Town Authority

Cultural Landscape

When you are able to design parklands that not only provide great recreational opportunities but allow visitors to truly connect culturally and traditionally to the place in which they sit, is how great parklands are born.
Li Lake is important to the culture of Wuxi and the Li Lake New City for which this lakefront parkland is located. Utilising simplistic, yet creative ideas to express the natural and cultural characteristics of Li Lake within the form and fabric of the park gives this parkland a unique identity and connection to a place. A major feature of the design is a landmark gateway structure which is representative of local fishing nets.
