2023 GFD 🏆 Awards

Gold Winner – Zhongshan Talents Park | ZDG Design

Waterbird resources in Great Bay Area have decreased by 60% because of human activities within the last 40 years. Wetlands and waterfront areas are severely threatened and polluted, causing the loss of resting and nesting spaces for birds and others. Landscape architects and allied professionals are responsible for restoring the natural habitats for wildlife and reducing the environmental impacts that former urbanized processes have put on the land.

The opportunity lies in the new urban core of Shiqi District, Zhongshan. Along the Qijiang River, a significant waterbird preservation corridor in Great Bay Area, the 55-acre waterfront is planned to be the future economic and ecological center of Zhongshan City. Our priority is to create a co- living place for humans and birds to share without interrupting each other. Constructed wetlands, island chains, forest conservation zone, and other topography changes are essential tools to cover the birds’ needs for shelter at different stages of their lives. Sponge City strategy is also implemented to mitigate urban environmental impacts furthermore. The park will provide public spaces for visitors to share a wonderful time with waterbirds in urban areas.

The park is currently under construction and will open in 2024.
