The region

区域定位

SuZhouis renowned for its historical gardens and waterways and agrarian culture.  It is a famous tourism region attracting international visitors from all parts of the world.  However, in recent yearsSuzhouhas undergone a bold shift with smart technology industries serving both national and world markets.

Integral ofSuzhou’s historical fabric, those technologies based industries are now an integral part ofSuzhou’s urban identity and economy.  The merge and juxtaposition of the old and new – the traditional and contemporary are now defining characteristic ofSuzhou’s urban fabric and are an intrinsic characteristic of the design competition district and new town of WeiTing.

苏州因园林、河网以及吴文化而闻名于世。驰名海外的旅游景点吸引了来自世界各地的国际游客。现代的苏州,受其服务于全球的高新技术产业的带动,正发生着翻天覆地的变化。

在苏州城市肌理中,高新技术产业已经成为现代苏州经济与城市形象的重要组成部分。 新与旧的融合,传统与现代的并致,成为当今苏州城市肌理的特色,并且不可避免的成为本项目基地和维亭新镇的特色所在。

To design an exciting landscape that is both contemporary and metaphorical. The landscape fabric will be meaningful and will interpret and fuse the districts’ old and new cultures and economies.

这是一个令人激动的景观设计,兼容现代与隐喻。这样景观不仅意义深长,而且能充分阐述和融合传统文化与当代文化,传统经济与当代经济。

The new city will be the business and administration engine of a mixed live,work and play district. Although the economic base of the new Weiting district will be based on mixed uses, a heavy emphasis on new and world class technology industries will form its primary economic function.

唯亭镇将成为集居住、工作和娱乐为一体的新城,也将成为商贸活动与行政管理的动力源泉。虽然唯亭镇的经济发端于多个经济门类,然而需要强调的是,新型的、世界一流的科技产业必将重塑其原有的经济形态。

As for the region ofSuzhou, the Weitingdistrict has undergone a radical shift from an agrarian based society and economy to a society based around a contemporary world connected to global markets.  Presently, that both cultures and fabrics happily coexist in juxtaposition forms unique district identity.

作为苏州的一个区域,唯亭正在经历一个根本性的转型,从一个农业型经济社会转变成为一个以全球市场为导向的现代型经济社会。目前,两种文化与脉络的和谐共处形成了区域的独特形象。

The shift from old to new and the coexist notion and character that underpins design concept for the proposed pedestrian street and surrounding spaces.

由旧到新的转型与和谐共存,这个地域特色构建出本项目步行街和周围空间设计的初步概念。

The landscape will be story telling and place making in a highly creative and contemporary manner informing both users and visitors of the districts past, present and future values and aspirations.

to create a dialog between different land parcels;

to create interesting contrast between materials, texture, and colors;
