L&A Design:A public leisure open space, an eco-oriented community, a business card for the city, Zhangzhou Bihu Lake Eco-Park perfectly reconciliation these three concepts into landscape urbanism. Base on the current situation of detention basin, the task of the landscape architect focused on three aspects: build a wetland eco system, create an organic connection between urban function and open space, and provide a healthy and vibrant public environment. Bihu Lake provides a visionary example for developing cities.

It successfully balances economic needs and historical heritages, further more changes the city’s urban development pattern and affects subsequent urban development policies and public cultural change. The sustainable strategies show the potential benefits that investment in green infrastructure can be.

The project evolved in a three-stage process of international competition, urban planning and landscape design. The landscape architect team seized this opportunity to explore innovative concepts to build a city-level eco-recreational water park based on the detention basin, with a multifunctional green space that provides recreational opportunities for its citizens. The living, cultural, and sustainable waterfronts intersperse and cross each other. Together they make up the functional framework, creating a new image of the city.

The open boundary of the park echoes the surrounding city function, while its three horizontal waterways intersperse with each other. The functional framework highlights the waterfront and the corresponding facilities and activities.


▼老旧建筑和历史文脉的保留成为现代风格的碧湖公园中独特的点缀,延续了当地族群世代习俗与生活方式  The preservation of old buildings and historical context is a unique ornament in the modern-style Bihu Lake, which lasts the customs and lifestyles of the local ethnic groups for generations.

Aside from retaining the Cuiying Temple and Cai’s ancestral hall, an artificial island was designed to preserve two ancient banyan trees. In the preservation process, the old buildings and their historical context became a unique charm in the lake’s new modern park. The burning incense is still continuously curling upwards in those ancestor temples and shrines, which have preserved the local ethnic customs and lifestyle.

In addition, the park also contains a children’s playground, city memorial museum, wetland education area and business district, as well as other facilities. Since its inception, the vibrant park is open year-round and has remained at the center of local life. People fly kites on the Sky Lawn, children dance in the lake square, and young men ride and run while egrets fly above. In the year of 2013, for the first time, Zhangzhou citizens enjoyed a completely different cultural vision and way of thinking through an international public art exhibition along the lake called “All the Way from Kassel,” which drew inspiration from dOCUMENTA, a world-class art event held every 5 years in Kassel, Germany.

The establishment of a commercial culture street and dock created a convenient path from the living area to the waterfront. F&B relied on the lake and connected the city interface to create a cultural life with characteristics of urban life, resulting in an effective business.


Highlighting the sustainable nature with respect for local characteristics stimulated the vitality of the community. The public park has become a green dream land for everyone. It is said in Zhangzhou that everyone is proud to live beside Bihu Lake.



低影响开发的生态公园  Low Impact


By drawing the Jiulong River water into the artificial wetland islands through a system of purification and filtration, landscape architects brought a sustainable, energy-saving solution to water quality, flood control and drainage problems. The use of the overall elevation and the lake’s inner circulation created water conservation areas. Solutions such as artificial wetlands, floating island, rain garden, ecological ditch and several other ecological engineering were used for water operations and maintenace. In order to provide 100 million squares to maintain storm water and flood during typhoon season, there is 1 meter height between the 54 hectares of the lake and the road level.

Bihu Lake Park’s ecological restoration was rapid. Water as a whole system bring a variety of functions to all, has become the soul of the park. In the northeast side of the lake, a no man’s island had become a habitat for many birds. All year round, the birds including egrets and ardea cinerea can be seen amongst people in harmonious coexistence.




Bihu Lake’s four seasons has become Zhangzhou’s new city landmark. Loacal person love it: Runners jog in the park, children play and chase in the bunker, pool and playground, couples enjoy time with each other, elders rest under the ancient banyan tree after offering incense at the temple, noisy crowds gather in the square, and families fly kites on the Sky Lawn. The People here recommend Bihu Lake as a must-see place to their friends who have come from afar. Thanks to this lake, the city has found a brand new confidence for future development.
