In the urban renewal of WISCO Jiangnan Gas Factory, the balance between new and old is important. We create livable community based on industrial relics and inherit its history and culture to achieve the transformation from an abandoned factory to a characteristic business exchange area on the east bank of the Yangtze River. In our design, we keep the abandoned railway track and use it to demonstrate historical sites. Based on original road system, we develop new slow traffic system on different scales in accord with residential and commercial buildings, and optimize the landscape along the roads. Taking advantages of green open space, with ecological concept of health and nature, we strive to create a natural, green and ecological living area.
