kunshan demonstration park 

Partnering with; Monash University’s CRC for Water Sensitive Cities, BKK Architecture and E2DesignLab, REALMstudios have developed a master plan concept for a 10 Ha Demonstration Park in the City of Kunshan, China.The Park will demonstrate how the various components of a water sensitive city combine to provide clean water, new ecologies and urban agriculture in a contemporary cultural city framework. The project provides a blueprint for the City of Kunshan to roll out across the city help to deal with the issues of health, well being and liveability as part of the broader Sponge City Program. The structuring of the site works across a series of ecotones at one level and then a gradient from current technologies to future city at another. The project is to be design developed by the local LDI and completed in early 2018.
