Be away from the common customs and desire, be light of heart as well as have some secrets on the mind…. They are the delight and pleasure that we have won from campus life. With the free order of time and places, what we want to display are the pictures linked by the memory, and the feeling affected by the landscape elements—the bluestone pavings that embed deeply in the lawn, t stepped stands that are based on the surmount, the avenues that marry teaching and living districts, the scientific teaching functional zones that resemble botanical gardens, the small squares that cater for the gatherings and ceremonies, and the green buffer territories that appear at the back of teaching buildings…. What the designers provide are not only the masterplan, but the planning for the future and development of the campus. With the excellent creation, the campus is like a micro city in which we will find the different resources and parts are connected so harmoniously by the delicate landscape design, and then the campus can satisfies the eagerness of our soul and creates gentle atmosphere for us. Tranquil but exciting, intense but active, strict but lively—they are the nature of the campus.
The most special attribute of the commercial district, a special complex space, is the combination of semi-overt and semi-private. Appreciated by the resident and pedestrian is the prior consideration of the designer, so the commercial district should not only harmonize with the environment around it, but also be divided into several functional areas, meanwhile, connect each core zone. Just this district, it takes full advantage of the space, forming the culture of the city. The art feeling of the landscape fill in every corner of the commercial district so that it blurs the limit between work and life and makes itself not only another kind of popularity.
No colour, no flavor and no shape—it’s the water. But it can be seen, touched and felt…. Yes, it’s here! The vigorous, changeable and mysterious connotation of water makes the waterfront space so lively and moving that touches your heart so thoroughly. Its flexibility erects the multivariation of waterfront space; its capacity forms the affinity of waterfront space; its circulation creates the sustainability of waterfront space. The varied abstract characteristics of waterfront space are mingled by the economy, ecology and landscape views. The integration shows the potential leisure nature of waterfront space and makes it become new focus of urban development in the future.
Home is what we call the paradise that we could apart from the hustle and busyness. Appreciate the glowing dawn light shining on the adobe wall; enjoy the aromatic flowers reflecting on the glistening water; recollect the flavorful coffee with aroma floating in the air; and feel the dimming light while leaning on the fence. Exquisite planning, rational distribution and deliberate details…. Everyone is mingled with comfort and it’s reluctant to tear him away from such a mild scene.
The fleetly development of the city makes it hard for people to embrace the nature intimately. The world is filled with reinforced concrete and noises, imposing so much pressure on urbanite’s heart. The urbanism is calling for a comfy space—that’s Urban Open Space. Open Space is embodiment of urban culture and life and it connects the different functions of the city. A successful design is effective for the intercommunion of people while they are sharing the open space, and it can create harmonious atmosphere between people and nature; a successful design will elevate the livingness of the city and upgrade the value of neighboring land. With the presence of urban open space, there will be more fascination and further improving in the city.
