In developing the Wetland, four new landmark waterfront developments have been created to promote cultural heritage, future innovation, civic administration, and hospitality. Each is based on three concepts: strategies drawn from Wuxi’s rich cultural history and its symbiotic relation with water, utilizing ecology in nature-inspired designs, and embedding sustainability and low carbon technologies. These developments enliven interactions with water and stimulate business and leisure activities, bringing people, culture, and nature together and creating a culturally and ecology-rooted narrative
