Gansu, a former trading hub along the Silk Road, our conceptual masterplan design draws on its history and the influence of one belt one road policy to create an innovative urban model for livable city. RSP’s winning design forthe new city will feature university villages, R&D, offices, residential plots together with cultural & innovation hubs and high value added industrial belt along the rivers and mountains to build a strong connection to local context. Among three urban cells well integrated with a bold green and blue framework, a large Central Park will be designated for urban forest flanked by regional creative headquarters and pedestrian shopping streets, exhibition centre, art and cultural facilities and science museum etc.
Our design will pioneer future industries, especially those related to urban sustainability and cultural renewal in a livable city. We conceptualized a multi-level green space system integrated with a three-dimensional pedestrian walking system from underground to sky bridge to protect and enrich the local natural ecology while catering to its community’s needs.
Low-carbon principles and multiple intelligent energy utilization techniques have also been weaved into the city’s design core infrastructure to sustain the environment and foster a culture of green innovation.
Where Lanzhou used to connect East and West through its strategic location along the Silk Road, it will now connect past and future as a sustainable home for culture heritage and eco-innovation.
