Weifang Naitonal Agriculture Demonstration Zone Core Area Funtional Zoning Plan

The project is a strategic measure to implement the current national agricultural policies. It covers the food valley (111.32 km2) and the north district of the Free Trade Zone (9.58 km2). Our plan aims to facilitate agricultural opening up, technological innovation, land reformation, integration of agriculture with the second and the third industry, and the creation of new growth drivers. It has mainly addressed three aspects:

– Building a world-class metropolitan food industry area. Learning from the Green-ports of Dutch food industry, and incorporating existing industries and infrastructure, we apply the metropolitan food cluster (MFC) to spatial structuring, and plan functions to support advanced supply chain. This project can be the reference for the whole Weifang region to establish its regional level cluster.

– Planning a future for agriculture, villages and the rural population. Based on existing forms of agricultural activities, local landscape resources and need for industrial functions, we have proposed diverse forms of agricultural activities, ranging from hi-tech closed production at corporate levels, to semi-open and open production at family/community farm levels. The proposal preserves one third of existing villages, and plans for their extended agricultural programs, to allow for social and cultural continuity in the economic and spatial transformation.

– Sustainable urbanization. Our plan is structured with the larger landscape and industrial functions, and embedded with circular economy strategies for industrial and urban metabolism. Specifically, a green-blue network carries ecological functions, urban green spaces and slow traffic system. The industrial areas are oriented with the MFC model and configured with functions along the supply chain. Recycling of water and biomaterials, and energy production from biomass and other types of renewables are planned to further make the industry and city more efficient and sustainable.

Anshun Xixiu District Xingjiang River Upstream Water Environment Management

Xingjiang River is the first level branch of Wujiang River. It is the ‘mother river’ of Anshun. The upper stream has attractive Karst landscape. Here is also the home of Minorities who has special type of building, named Tunpu. However, the river environment are polluted and chanalized. The quality of ecology and flooding safety problem influence the local society and economy which need to be improved urgently.
The goal of this project is to comprehensively enhance the safety level for flood control and river ecology of upstream tributaries of Xingjiang River. At the same time, stimulating the added value of the area is another goal. The plan drops the commonly used traditional single solution off: no building hard dykes only for flood control; no proposing development restriction policies only for ecology recovery; no relying on the water purification factory. Instead, we are going to create a multi-level planning strategy by using eco-friendly method on improving the follow aspects: improving flood carrying capacity of the river; improving flood storage capacity of river and river control areas; enhancing the self-purification capacity of the water bodies. Meanwhile by designing with professional landscape knowledge we can achieve the improvement of environmental quality. The specific strategies also include returning land to the river, building ecol-gully, eco-green land construction etc.
