Kunshan Duke Avenue
Masterplan | Urban Design
Duke Avenue is a key piece of the Blue Kunshan plan, running East-West to connect two North-South corridors and linking Duke University to Kunshan Forest Park. Altogether, these corridors will form a central open space eco-loop. This loop connects residents to nature and neighbors by restoring canal health and creating opportunities for activities throughout the journey. Duke Avenue’s design will reconnect the street to its context and create a vibrant and healthy environment to attract pedestrians and cyclists. By building amenities and connecting bike trails and pedestrian circulation to nearby attractions, the space will become accessible and facilitate a rich public sphere.
