SWA-LA&City Construction Design：Since the beginning of 2020, COVID-19 has rapidly spread around the world, making each piece of green land and community park extremely precious in high-density cities, for they provide natural and beautiful spaces for people living in the “concrete forest”. Ideally located nearby the CBD, Guangzhou Grand Mansion Urban Park is skillfully designed from the landscape perspective, aiming to provide citizens with an open and peaceful land where they can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and freely imagine their future life.
“The paintings should keep up with the times”, the same is true of design. In the face of increasing social stresses today, landscape design distinguishes itself by establishing invisible bridges between human, city, community and nature. It encourages people to walk out of confined spaces, return to nature and experience the essence of life. Urban park design should not only focus on creating aesthetic value but also pay attention to shaping new lifestyle and new scenes of life.
缝合城市、社区与自然，探寻CBD公园生活方式 Connect city and community with nature, explore park lifestyle by CBD
Ideally located nearby the newly-built Wanbo CBD and the world-famous Chimelong Paradise, the site of the community-style urban park is approximately 800 meters long from east to west and 150 meters from south to north, covering a total area of 46,000 square meters. Not only does it connect with the 116,000 square meters Longqishan Mountains, the so-called “green lung” in the west, but it forms a pleasant and ecological corridor in the Grand Mansion, which naturally extends and penetrates into the surroundings.
As the designer recalled, when he first walked into the muddy site and overlooked the spectacular skyline of Wanbo CBD, an idea struck him: was it possible to break the boundary between community and city and create an urban park that could be shared by residents and workers around? It would be a space where they could immerse themselves in the beautiful scenery, explore the vitality of nature, and experience the modern park lifestyle.

In the design for Guangzhou Grand Mansion Urban Park, SWA-Los Angeles cooperated with the world-renowned SOM, Guangdong Architectural Design & Research Institute Co.,Ltd. and XAA, creating scenes of park-community life through planning, architectural design and landscape design. Their joint efforts also contribute to the ecological and artistic experiences in the urban park community. As for the landscape, the designer outlines the texture of nature with hill, water, woods, rocks and island, creating flexible landscape spaces that allow people to relax themselves physically and mentally.
营造自然有趣的场地，激发公园社交活力 Create a natural space for fun, activate the park for social life
The soft and long curve at the entrance blurs the boundary between city and community, and connects the hustle and bustle of city with the tranquility of the park. Being a new landmark of the city, the entrance space is not only designed to be ceremonial and welcoming, but also marks the beginning of nature therapy.

Enclosed by hackberry trees, maple trees and terminalia neotalial, a 250 meters long linear land is decorated by modern and elegant lamps, providing a unique space experience from dynamic to tranquility.
▼微地形处理使空间更有层次感 Micro-terrain treatment makes the space more hierarchical
▼造型路灯营造开合感 Arrange street lamps to create a sense of opening
▼踏水而来，动静皆宜 Come treading on water, alternate between dynamic and tranquility
In the dappled shades of trees, the tranquility of forest can be experienced from the depth of the park. Walking along the dynamic boundary, you will enter the park and have an extremely open view. The rolling green hill, the zigzag path and the Chinese pennisetum contribute to a wonderland for kids, which will inspire their imagination.
▼趣味水景 Fun waterscape
Hidden in the park, the sales center distinguishes itself in the natural light and shadow. In the future, it will serve as the public Art and Culture Center, which offers a 10,000-square-meter space for various art exhibitions. Being a “spiritual gathering place” for people to closely experience art, it will greatly enhance the artistic and cultural atmosphere of Wanbo district.

On weekends or weekdays, the star square and the children’s garden are full of people playing, running, laughing or simply sitting under the pergola to enjoy the sunshine as well as the dappled shades of trees.
▼星光广场 The star square
- ▼童趣花园 The children’s garden
The open lawn serves as an activity center, where parents can have a picnic, take a walk or fly kites with their children. On weekends, concerts and parties will be held together with champagne and outdoor movies. Green and refreshing environment will encourage the communication between people. Overlooking the skyline of Wanbo CBD in sunset glow, you can fully experience the comfortable and peaceful park-community lifestyle in modern city.
合力挖掘场域潜力，带动区域综合价值提升 Tap potentials of the site, add values to the area
In the future, Guangzhou Grand Mansion Urban Park will continue to develop its second phase landscape. Longqishan Mountain will be reserved and built as a mountain park, thus forming a nature-based landscape corridor that runs through building groups from east to west. The vitality and life force of the urban park will penetrate into Wanbo CBD, maximizing its eco and cultural influence and adding values to the area.
With an international perspective, SWA-Los Angeles fully tapped the ecological potentials of the site, creating a value-added green park and establishing the bond between the CBD and the residential community. Its openness and inclusiveness will change the way of communication in traditional communities. Also, it is the high-efficiency practice of City Construction Design that ensures the realization of the design. Though it is the first cooperation between SWA and City Construction Design, it is a great success. And in the future, we hope to present more beautiful urban experiences with our joint efforts.
