INTERNATIONAL YUN-FLOWER ECO TOWN
The proposed Yun-Flower Eco Town seeks to deepen the bonds between people and nature. The design response is specific to the unique qualities of the place, it’s beautiful setting on Dianchi Lake, the area’s renowned flower industry, and the local heritage. A place for sustainable living and research is proposed that prioritises the landscape, promotes social engagement and offers a diverse park system designed to bring the community together.
The plan connects an existing temple and Santai Mountain to the lakefront via a green axis, activated by innovative landscapes. The axis links seamlessly with a green belt system that unfolds along the lakefront, reinforcing the connections between the mountain and water, history and the future. The water’s edge is envisioned as a vibrant public space comprised of distinctive, linked character zones: the "Eco-Leisure Experience Area," the "Eco-Silicon Valley Recreation Area" and the “Eco-Industry Forum Area".
Yun-Flower Eco Town represents a new vision for ecologically conscious living that will position Kunming as a global destination, famous for its flowers and world class design. The outcome is an urban ecological development model, designed to intensify the diversity of the lake ecosystem and establish an enhanced lifestyle quality.
