In order to preserve and revive a nature-born mangrove ecosystem on abandoned farmland, we try to keep the geometric terrain left from farming and avoid removals of the existing trees. We create a maze looked landscape structure out of existing land and water, by simply make openings to allow water circulation. This interference forms an amazing mangrove landscape that allows kayaking, trekking, with the insertion of public spaces and sustainable architectures. The viewing tower cum open-air theatre at the center offers a fascinating loop-walk and performance activities for visitors.
