“Broad, artistic gestures break the boundaries of traditional gated communities.”

SWA’s design for this park, with its collegiate social atmosphere, offers a memorable place of natural respite that functions as green infrastructure.

Innovation City Park project is located at the intersection of three science and innovation corridor axes in Guangzhou International Innovation City, including the core axis of the University City. Because of its proximity to Jinan University, the project’s design is refined by artistic and natural methods to attain an unbounded, ecological, low-density garden atmosphere.

The project breaks the boundaries of traditional gated residential communities, creating open spaces that invite the surrounding community’s integration. Ancient eucalyptus trees were kept in place to link the community, school, city, and park, underscoring the connections among humans, nature, culture, knowledge, and emotion. The design also enhances the traditions of the school — of learning under the shade of these aged trees — to strengthen the park’s aesthetics.
