Harbin’s public open spaces play an important role all year round in this lively northern Chinese city, even when it is -30oC outside. The 27 kilometer long He Jia River will become a green artery of city parts flowing through the western area of the city.

Harbin’s public open spaces play an important role all year round in this lively northern Chinese city, even when it is -30oC outside. The 27 kilometer long He Jia River will become a green artery of city parts flowing through the western area of the city. The design is based on two recurring themes: The Art of Nature and The Nature of Art. This idea shapes the landscape and cultural elements of the park. The functions and details of the park directly relate to the adjacent uses in the city, adding to its value for visitors and residents alike. This project is a welcome change to the old use of this “brown” river as open sewage for a city of 10 million residents.
