Jian Lake District, Zhang Ji Gang PRC Master Plan and Environmental Design

This is a new town for 90,000 built on a 950 acre brown field on the lower river flood plane. The Master Plan was developed by a team from VT and the private sector for an international compilation in 2003 which we won. The one square mile lake was created from a significantly damaged ecosystem and became the basis for a city developed on ecological principals for land use and water where the landscape heals itself while and to accommodate the growth of the community,   The photos represent the development and growth of the community after 11 years of construction.
