Xi'an/ 2015/ 10000 m²
Xi'an Vanke Oriental Legend is located at the well-known Qujiang New District which is rich of cultural heritages. The project is composed of an entry plaza & a commercial street. The major challenge of this project is to design a well-functional landscape with unique cultural elements. The design proposal tries to explore a modern way of Chinese styled landscape. The concept is inspired by two poems written by the famous Chinese poet Wang Wei from Tang dynasty that praise the nature beauty. The design introduces a mirror pool, a series of spray jets, a waving landform, a cloud-like stone sculpture and a cherry allee into the entry plaza that coordinate with the different heights of the site. In the commercial street area, 5 small water features are integrated gracefully into the street that make the walking experience more comfortable. In addition, various kinds of canopy trees and ornamental plants are placed on the site to provide pleasant micro-climate.
