The Nansong Lake High-tech Ecological Park Master Planning in Kunshan reflects a typical urban model of a city facing rapid expansion due to a burgeoning manufacture industry. The city faces challenges including the shrinking and fragmentation of green spaces and ecosystems; water and air pollution; and the physical and mental issues which arise due to a lack of green spaces. The Park provides the only large lake amidst brownfields and serves as a space for corporate display and business whilst also meeting the growing demands for recreational spaces and the restoration of ecosystems.
