City Construction Design：The project is ideally located in Guangzhou International Innovation Center, overlooking the back waterway of the Pearl River and enjoying the educational atmosphere of HEMC (Guangzhou Higher Education Mega Center). In the 32,000㎡exhibition area of the park, boundless, ecological and low-density lifestyle is interpreted in a natural and artistic way.

Zooming & Upward —— the fortress stands at the entrance in an expansive gesture of welcome, embracing the lively atmosphere of the HEMC and the community. Power of life surges and penetrates into every corner of the park, leading people to embark upon a new journey of life.

The arch over the gateway extends 30 meters long, whose dome is made of 600 special-shaped curved surfaces. Night follows day and the dome is bathed in light, allowing people to enjoy the romance of the starry night.
A 40 meters long tortuous “Bridge of Wisdom”, constructed of 1001 subtly curved square tubes, suspends over the hill and dances with the stream, flowers and trees in the surroundings.
The banks of the gravel-edged stream are covered with green plants and colorful flowers. Listening to the murmur of water and bathed in the mist, you will find yourself in a painting-like world.
Following the light, you will find a green “stage” appearing in the misty wood, where children sit on the soft grass, reading, drawing or enjoying the beautiful view. Families and friends are seated under the trees, chatting and laughing.
The old eucalyptus tree not only serves as the connection between the community, the HEMC and the park, but is also a link between man and nature, man and culture, knowledge and emotions. The second stage of the park will follow the same idea and create a gathering space for people.
A mysterious and surprising land is created by taking advantages of the height difference, where a path leads people onto a terrace that provides a panoramic view of the HEMC. Nearby on the grass, concert, parties and family gatherings are going on in a pleasant atmosphere. Here you can enjoy life to the full.
With special focus on the experience of going back home, the park is designed with walkway, bikeway, and driveway running through trees and flowers. In addition, there is a rainwater garden for people to rediscover the beauty of nature in the city.
The rotating Mobius band over the water courtyard is a symbol of infinity, which connects the campus, the future community and the boundless life along the back waterway of the Pearl River.
“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately,” said the poet Henry David Thoreau. Wandering about unhurriedly in the park will help you bring back the long-lost freedom and lightheartedness, allowing you to enjoy the ideal life.
From techniques and materials to construction site management, the design team tried the best to keep everything under control, presenting a series of memorable sights that show the healing power of landscape.
