Wanxin Urban Pastoral, Hefei, PRC

“Wanxin Urban Pastoral” project, with a planned area 300,000 sm, is located north to the Hefei Chaohu Lake National Tourism and leisure area, which is an important node for the Chaohu Lake Rim. The project is based upon utilizing Wanxin’s educational expertise to create a regional education innovation center that aggregates global education and research resources. An important design feature of the site is transforming unused fish ponds into world-class wetlands. This highly innovative project combines leisure tourism and hi-tech agriculture with the educational programs to create the harmonious development of the urban cultural innovation oriented eco-pastoral complex.
