RESEARCH ON LANDSCAPE-ORIENTED URBAN DESIGN: ON THE EXAMPLE OF QIXIAN NEW INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT DESIGN IN FENGXIAN, SHANGHAI

Abstract

Proceedings of the XXV ISUF International Conference “Urban Form and Social Context: from Traditions to Newest Demands” (Krasnoyarsk, July 5–9, 2018)In recent years, low carbon production and ecology have gradually become one of the most important topics in the field of architecture and urban design. Under the background of new urbanization in China, the status of eco-city theory and landscape design practice are gradually increasing in urban design. Therefore, as a new type of urban design, the landscape-oriented urban design has a strong practical significance. This method requires landscape going first in urban design and the layout of the buildings around the landscape design comes afterward. Fengxian District, part of Shanghai, is located in the southeast of the Yangtze River Delta. Since 1980s, the industry in Fengxian District has been developing rapidly with the main industry types of food, cardboard boxes, candy, printing, beauty and so on. This article takes the urban design of QiXian industrial zone as an example, introducing the application of the landscape-oriented urban design method. In this project, the venue is about 1.2 km long from east to west and 350 m wide from north to south. The original land function is for industrial use and it is to be transformed into a new industrial park where leading health and beauty as the leading industry. The design concept revolves around the “U-shaped” landscape corridors and creates a continuous corridor suitable for walking. A multi-story layout of “architecture-landscape-architecture” is adopted to construct the layout of the buildings around the landscape design and takes the form of courtyard. The paper explores landscape-oriented urban morphology design and provides new possibilities for landscape eco-city design. This paper is subsidized by NSFC project which is named as , NO.51678412
