First Prize design competition Qinhuai Riverfront Park
In collaboration with Nita Nanjing, the team of Niek Roozen landscape made the prize winning design for Qinhuai Riverfront Park in Nanjing, a 15 kilometre long park along the banks of the Qinhuai River.
The design aimed to bring people back to the river. Boardwalks, pavilions, squares and boat docks create a strong connection with the river again. The active waterfront fascinates urban life, inviting the people of Nanjing to engage in a healthy lifestyle. By bringing together history, culture, activities and nature the plan provides a strong base for a sustainable relationship with the urban landscape.
