eco-park in qingdao by gmp architekten

Near the coast of the yellow sea in qingdao, china, german practice gmp architekten has laid the first cornerstone for 'eco-park in qingdao', a sustainable living and working district. positioned between the mountain ranges and  the ocean, the ten square kilometer site is positioned amidst the rock formations and green plains of the area. The design integrates the highest possible proportion of renewable energy sources into the masterplan including water and wind power, geothermal energy and an emphasis upon solar energy. the region has an above average number of sunny days per year, making this a viable option. subdivided into eight quarters, the arrangements resemble the soft contours of the landscapes geologic forms while ensuring short distances between the entities. the buildings feature mixed uses and varied densities ranging in height from single family houses up to eight story apartment blocks. Also in qingdao, this development will join the firm's other the recently completed project, qingdao grand theater.
