The landscape concept for the Masterplan in Changsha, China, collects materials present in the city and brings them together in a public space. The construction of a park, one of soon to be multiple open areas, presents a glimpse into the future of the new development.
The design of the paving, somewhat reminiscent of a mosaic, derives from „patches“ on the local sidewalks — the traces of reparation, where the roads are fixed with materials different from the ones used in the original construction. Altogether, a new district rises up, where the landscape design precisely corresponds to the use of the area.
The Masterplan overlooks 43 ha of land, serving for both public and residential use. Thus, landscape solutions differentiate depending on the part of the project: the residential areas are defined by vast greenery that creates a nature-like quiet atmosphere for the residents, while colourful materials and various programmes create quality public spaces.
