S.P.I Landscape Group: Jinke Jiuqu River Project locates in Yubei District, Chongqing, a Mountain City of China. Facing Jialing River on the west and adjacent to Jiuqu River wetland Park on the south, the site has a superior geographical location and convenient traffic conditions. With the rising international status and the prevailing of oriental culture, China returns with a brand new look and a young attitude. China has the potential to stun this era with its numerous national treasures. We explore the possibility to combine the past and present, to look for a national confidence of modern Chinese and to assimilate the oriental aesthetics to the daily life of the young generation. Chongqing Jinke Jiuqu River project integrates oriental aesthetics into landscape design and gives it modern fascination. One of our big challenges is to create an artistic and innovated landscape style in overall residential area that follows the design concept of “Nine States of Life”.

During the program stage of this project, our design team was divided into smaller groups, with competitions to inspire each other, as well as careful selection and many rounds of adjustment. Our team went through thousands times of deliberate modifications and critiques. After pushing for more than 30 times, under the deep thinking of scenic city context and the beauty of architectures, our team ultimately are able to present the landscape programme of flat area: Flowing Water and Floating Clouds.

The residential area contains luxury apartments with oriental townhouses and targets on a younger group. In addition, the landscape experience focuses on a visual enjoyment. Different from the Zen aesthetics of the demonstration area and the construction of traditional spaces, we use a more contemporary design language and a more comfortable way to demonstrate the life scene of the oriental Life.
For the design, through the form of flowing water, the implication of clouds, presents a free, luxury, and quiet lifestyle. The southern block of the area was inspired by the concept of “moving clouds” first came out. When enjoying the landscape, visitors will feel like floating up and down in the clouds of east and waiting for a bright moon in your heart.

行云：云是活泼的，也是逍遥的 Moving clouds: Clouds are vivid and free
Under literiti’s words, clouds are indispensable elements to create ambience. Its unique form gives people a sense of illusion. In addition, its white color and light mass which makes it floating in the air, endows cloud a lofty and pure spirit. We extracted “moving clouds” as a design element, using white as the keynote, to create a new urban landscape garden combining modern vocabulary and traditional aesthetics in the southern block of the residential area.

The southern block landscape is divided into five parts. “Yunyou (The Wondering Clouds)” is the focal point both visually and specially. “Yunying (The Shadow of Clouds)” and “Yunjing (The Realm of Clouds)” are located on the east of the site. “Yunfan(The Listening of Clouds)” and “Yunshang (The Admiring of Clouds)” are located on the site west, which providing the view of main entrance. With the spirit of clouds, residents are able to enjoy the ultimate luxury, mentally and environmentally.

Stepping in from the entrance, with the accompanying sound of purling streams, visitors start an encounter upon the clouds. “Yunyou (The Wondering Clouds)” is the central reception space. Cascade, pavilion, and sunken platform are utilized to create a space with diverse experience of elevation, providing visitors with a richer landscape experience and a possibility of exploring more places.
For the central landscape establishment, we made a contrast between the colors of different materials and combined the foggy forest and colorful woods to build a superior atmosphere among which visitors feel like stepping on clouds and being surrounded by the blue sky.
跌水：跌水如瀑，激起涟漪层层 The Falling Water: the water falls, stirring layers of ripples
The central reflection waterscape uses the blue diamond marble from Brazil. The crystals in the stone enhance the sparking water surface, echo the view of Jialingjiang River from a distance, and embrace the landscape of Jiuquhe River, which indicates a quiet and magnificent environment. The powerful feature walls and floating pavilion use the Elizabeth marble and white paint from Italy. The white color is pure as the clouds and eye-catching as well, making the pavilion the focal point of the district.
The waterfall drops from the top of the white pavilion, creating splashes of water, stirring layers of ripples and breaking the peace of the reflecting water surface. The springs on the edge of the pool are arranged in an orderly manner to cooperate with the lighting system under water.
Above the waterfall of the reflection waterscape, a customized stainless sculpture named “on the top of Jiuqu” by expatriated sculptor leave an infinite imaginary space. The sculpture looks like clouds, fog, rain or even elves living on the clouds.

From another angle of view, let’s approach the central waterscape from the other side. The continuous façade of the feature wall that made of Elizabethan marble, is complemented by a wooden grille that allows the light of the central waterscape to flow through. Looking at the center waterscape through the open, the sound of the water becomes clearer when visitors move, add depth to the landscape and increasing their curiosity to explore the space.
Through the open of the wall, a platform invites people to interact with water and stay. Visitors listen to the gentle sound of water flowing and obtain a peaceful mind.
廊道：蜿蜒曲折，在云雾中浮沉 Corridor: meander and drift in the clouds
The plank road on the side of the center is higher than the ground, with wooden pavement and glass railings on the two sides. When the sunlight passes through the trees and casts shadows on the ground, the mist spray in the forest forms water vapor in air like a wonderland. The meander and twist space makes visitors feels like drifting in the flowing clouds.

The eastern residential garden is “Yunying (The Shadow of Clouds)” and “Yunjing (The Realm of Clouds)”. We used guide lines, matching white walls with blue water to set up the fundamental color tone of the entire space. Moreover, the twists and turns of the flower pond with distinct shape and the extension of the pavement’s dark lines open a chapter of new landscape scene in our daily life. “Yunfan (The Listening of Clouds)” and “Yunshang (The Admiring of Clouds)” are on the west of residential garden. We put the active and flexible lines with the surrounding plants. The contrasting colors like white against the green color of evergreen trees and diverse colors of leafy woods contribute to a fresh and natural feeling. Reflection water surface was also added to enrich the layers of plants and the whole landscape.

The building entrance is decorated with the Jiuquhe River logo, which has a modern and simple design, going with Red fruit holly, a beautiful tree with elegant form and ornamental fruits and flowers as well as crape myrtle, reflecting a great aesthetic taste.
Oriented from Chongqing Jiuqu, it finally ends with the nine states of life.
Lights and shadow, materials, waterscape, sculptures, and plants cooperate with each other and create a unique rhythm by taking advantage of curvy lines and polylines. When visitors walk through the landscape, the view keeps changing and brings a more delicate experience. The orient aesthetics is a treasure book and always gives us a different insight when we open it.
