Concept Design
The masterplan transforms Kunshan West into a livable district by prioritizing ecology, recreation and regional culture. Each strategy addresses site-specific challenges: greening and activating the network of streets and canals; bringing parks within reach for every neighborhood; creating an identity that reflects the district’s past and future; and establishing a core loop in the first phase to address immediate open space gaps. These initiatives give Kunshan West the framework to support population growth and maintain the city’s cultural relationship with its canals.
