The site was originally designed as a branch channel for motorboats, which featured a concrete U-shaped groove structure.The owner wanted to add a kayaking channel to this section according to the existing conditions.Design realized the ecological transformation including the relief of visual pressure, softening of the watercourse, reconstruction of traffic flow, and creation of a spatial art atmosphere to create a winding and soft natural riverbank landscape and to form a wild Amazon-like experience.
