Wuhu City East

Wuhu City East

This international design competition master plan involved the expansion of the city centre by 42 km² to accommodate an increased population and provide appropriate commercial, cultural and recreational facilities. In addition, a 6 km² cultural and commercial core for the expansion area was also designed in detail.

A strong axial relationship was established between the existing mountain to the west, a new central linear peoples' park, a new city administration and cultural centre, and botanical gardens to the east. Extensive residential precincts surround the core with associated recreation facilities.

The overall design concept creates new road and public open space networks, expands the existing river and canal system and provides a vibrant urban centre that balances the relationship of the notable features of land, mountains, forest and water.
