Huludao, China

Professional urban design workshop to design a new eco-city quarter in Huludao, north east China organised by Les Ateliers.

The masterplan, developed with a team of international experts, makes use of the natural topography of the site to capture, clean and recycle water – the scarcest resource in this environment. A system of protected channels through which grey water is cleaned by the action of plants gives a multi-coloured structure to the city.
