Text description provided by the architects.

The site is located along Fuxi River in a hilly area of Sichuan between Chongqing and Chengdu.
The new landscape aims to enliven the waterfront by providing a striking place to connect the city back to the river through the provision of amenity space and identity.

The landscape concept draws inspiration from the meandering nature and complex patterns of Fuxi River, and the dragon which not only serves as a spiritual symbol to China but alludes to the Dragon Boat Race, one of the major events of this area.

This translates into a fluid landscape concept that correlates with the topography of the site, creating a dynamic nature of landscape corridors which flow through the site and provides unique moments, spaces and elements, incorporating functions and spaces to respond to the festivities, neighborhood amenity and a site that embraces its cultural heritage.

The ‘dinosaur ribs’ are a striking sculptural element that repeats along the promenade to celebrate the vast quantities of dinosaur fossils that were excavated in the Middle Jurassic era..
