Locates in the urban area of Xingyang city, within a 2.5 square kilometer site possessing a 21-kilometer-long water system, the project is conceptualized through constructing “a healthy ecological system”. The design is strategized by six approaches, including green-sponge, diverse vegetation, ecological architecture, low-carbon material, non-motorized traffic system, and ecological morphology. Centering an overall spatial structure called “Healthy Ecological Valley and Green Sponge Corridor”, programmatic zoning divides the site into five themes: popular science learning, oxygen garden, window of the city, historical touch, and ecological gateway. The green valley integrates multiple functions, including sports, resort, cultural entertainment, tourism and public activities. Its impact covers the city of Zhengzhou, as a full-cycle, health-themed ecological demonstration area.
