On the border of Taihu, the second largest lake in China, water village Guangfu is going through an economical and touristic development. The main landscape structure is shaped by hills, channels and geometric formed fishponds. Based on these structures we developed a concept for the extension of two existing harbors. The touristic development of the village is being realized by fitting into the design a museum, some restaurants and a play object in the shape of a ship. The nautical character will be emphasized by constructing a small dockyard and some nautical objects on the central square on the waterside.
