Huancao River sits in Xiangcheng City Development District in Suzhou, total area of 2037 hectares. NITA plans to show the contrast between the stillness of the architectures and the beauty in motion. NITA designers created 4 small islands to represent the moon in 4 different states. 3 crescent-moon-shaped islands lines up with the 2 kilometer bridge on the river. The 4th island which also in the shape of a crescent moon, lies in the east of the lake. The 4 islands represent different state of the moon, layout the shift of season on one layer, show a quietly rhythmic beauty. Overlooking the lake, the water flows gently like sharing one breath with time.
