Creating architectural renders is not bonded by location. As one of the merits of 3D rendering services, no one can deny the fact that 3D artists are able to deliver perfect visuals in a short time to anywhere on this planet. In Japan, 3D rendering services are widely used to save time and money, communicate ideas more effectively, and gain a competitive advantage in their industry.
Japan’s incredibly diverse and innovative array of modern architecture deeply connect to the traditional architecture, also has transformed with the modern world today. Whether you’re into wabi-sabi houses, stunning capsule towers, or wooden-structured buildings, you’re going to find some surprises in this Architectural Rendering Projects in Japan list. Let’s begin.
Located in Hokkaido, ES13 is a quiet, tranquil mansion on the mountainside. With a total floor area of 778 square meters, this reinforced concrete is nestled in the forests where nature flows. Equipped with 5 bedrooms and a Japanese bath, this 3-storey mansion finds peace within the texture of wood, stone and brick.
AIMIR create both exterior and interior 3D renderings for this amazing residence to reconnect with nature. The realistic exterior renderings focus on the structure of the mansion and its surrounding environment. Meanwhile, the interior renders demonstrate the living room, bathroom, bedroom, and balcony in a photorealistic manner. In the 3D visuals, the viewers can get immersive experience when seeing the incredible floor-to-ceiling glass windows, natural concrete materials, and majestic scenes from all rooms.
Located in Tokyo, Japan, just 3 kilometers from the Tokyo Tower, this high-end residence is a three-story private property with an underground garage. This space sticks to minimalism, to have a simple lifestyle. The designer used light concrete and wooden as the main colors, to ease the comfort of this space. Natural light is the main lighting source so that the rooms are warmly lighted and feel more like a home rather than a house.
In our visuals, we express the many faces of the living room, bedroom, swimming pool, and entrance in a vibrant, modern but wabi-sabi style. More details of making this interior space is in our case study of Z Residence here.
Also situated in Hokkaido, Fenix Furano is on the foot of North Mountain in Furano city, featuring fantastic view of ski field and mountains. Actually, Furano Hotel is the second largest ski resort in Japan. The hotel lobby is designed with grey concrete walls, dark wall painting and maple wood ceiling to enhance the coziness and elegance.
In our 3D exterior renders, the hotel features concrete structure, wood louver, and metal mesh. At the same time, no matter it’s a daytime or night view, our 3D artists enrich the scene with people and activities, emphasizing the skiing and festive atmosphere. What’s more, the 3D interior views demonstrate both the lobby and the room. Don’t miss the custom stone-like warm lightings which provide continuous soft lighting for the lobby’s seating area, resonating with them of being liveness and inviting.
By the way, the vertical daytime view is also used as the cover of a magazine in local marketing. For the full story of making of Fenix Furano, please visit here.
This 4-story apartment in Hokkaido features the fantastic view of ski field and Mountain Tokachidake. With modern Japanese design and 15 rooms available, Sion Millet apartment has absolute view of both ski field nearby and Tokachidake (a beautiful mountain).
We created both exterior and interior views for this apartment. Three exterior street views focus on translating the structure and façade, while the interior views showcase the room with splendid mountain views.
KCP Apartment (2)
This apartment silently sits in Abuta District, Hokkaido. With an incredible forest view, the units are equipped with large floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. As a result, the home owners are able to wake up in the morning and see the world changed into a beautiful white wonderland.
Snow view is one of the most difficult views to create in architectural 3D rendering process. Not because it’s rare, but because of its heavy needs for rendering especially for the snow. In our renders, 3D artists emphasize on the consistency of the structure and the snow scene. By delivering two perfect renders, our 3D artists create a harmonious world of nature and living.
That wraps up our selected projects in Japan. There are residential and commercial architecture including mansions, apartments, and hotels. Our studio has more projects in Japan to share, but due to our Non-Disclosure Agreement, some of them may need to remain confidential. However, we believe we’ll be allowed to share some of them soon

The world of 3D art and architecture is constantly evolving, and artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of the creative process. AI technology has the potential to revolutionize the way that 3D artists and architects work, providing new tools and techniques to help streamline the design process and improve the quality of the final product. However, with these benefits come concerns about the role of AI in these industries, and whether or not it will eventually replace human designers altogether.
How do 3D Artists and Architects Work?
First, let’s take a look at how 3D artists and architects currently work. 3D artists use software such as Rhino, 3ds Max and Corona Renderer to create three-dimensional models of objects and environments. These models can be used in a variety of contexts, including video games, films, architecture construction, and product design. The 3D artist is responsible for everything from the initial concept art to the final rendering of the model.
Similarly, architects use software to create three-dimensional models of buildings and structures. These models are used to visualize the final product, test out different design options, and communicate the design to clients and other stakeholders. Architects are responsible for everything from the initial sketches to the final construction documents.
Both 3D artists and architects use a combination of technical skill and artistic talent to create their designs. They need to have a deep understanding of geometry, lighting, color theory, and composition, as well as a keen eye for detail and aesthetics.
AI’s Role in Assisting 3D Artists and Architects
So, what can AI do to help 3D artists and architects? One of the most significant ways that AI can assist designers is by automating certain aspects of the design process. For example, AI can be used to generate procedural textures, which can save 3D artists time and effort. Procedural textures are created algorithmically and can be applied to 3D models to create complex, realistic surfaces that would be difficult to create manually.
AI can also be used to generate 3D models automatically. This is particularly useful in product design, where designers need to create large numbers of similar objects quickly. With AI-assisted design tools, architects and designers can specify the parameters of the object they want to create (such as size, shape, and material), and the software will generate a 3D model that meets those specifications.
Another area where AI can be useful is in the optimization of designs. AI can be used to simulate how different design options will perform in real-world conditions, allowing designers to test and refine their designs without having to build physical prototypes. This can save time and money, as well as help designers create more efficient and effective designs.
Concerns and How Human Perform Better than AI
However, there are also concerns about the role of AI in 3D art and architecture. One of the main concerns is that AI will eventually replace human designers altogether. While it’s true that AI can automate certain aspects of the design process, it’s unlikely that it will be able to replace the creativity and artistic talent of human designers completely.
AI-generated designs may be efficient and functional, but they may lack the artistic flair and emotional depth that human designs can bring. Additionally, AI-generated designs may lack the cultural context and human perspective that human designers can provide. As a result, it’s likely that AI will be used to assist and augment human designers, rather than replace them altogether.
Another concern is that AI-generated designs may lack the ability to adapt to changing circumstances. Human designers are able to take into account a wide range of factors when creating a design, including cultural and environmental factors, as well as the specific needs and preferences of the client. AI-generated designs may be efficient and effective, but they may not be able to adapt to changing circumstances as well as human designers can.
Still a Good Tool
Despite these concerns, AI has the potential to be a valuable tool for 3D artists and architects. By automating certain aspects of the design process, AI can help designers focus on the creative aspects of their work, allowing them to explore new ideas and push the boundaries of what’s possible. Additionally, AI can help designers work more efficiently, allowing them to produce higher quality work in less time.
One area where AI is already making a significant impact is in the creation of virtual environments. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies are becoming increasingly popular, and designers are using AI to create immersive, realistic environments that can be used in a variety of contexts, from gaming to education to real estate. AI can be used to generate realistic textures and lighting, as well as to simulate the behavior of objects and characters within the environment.
Another area where AI is making a difference is in the creation of generative art. Generative art is a form of art that is created using algorithms, and AI is particularly well-suited to this type of work. AI algorithms can be used to generate unique and complex patterns, shapes, and colors, allowing artists to create works of art that would be difficult or impossible to create manually.
Despite these benefits, there are also concerns about the ethical implications of using AI in 3D art and architecture. One concern is that AI-generated designs may perpetuate existing biases and inequalities. For example, if the AI algorithms used to generate designs are trained on data that is biased in some way (such as data that is predominantly created by male designers), then the resulting designs may also be biased.
Another concern is that AI-generated designs may be used to replace human labor, leading to job losses and economic inequality. While it’s true that AI can automate certain aspects of the design process, it’s important to remember that human creativity and artistic talent cannot be replicated by machines. Additionally, it’s likely that AI will be used to augment human designers, rather than replace them altogether.
What to Expect From AI in the Future?
In conclusion, the relationship between AI and 3D artists and architects is complex and multifaceted. While AI has the potential to revolutionize the way that designers work, providing new tools and techniques to help streamline the design process and improve the quality of the final product, it’s important to remember that AI is not a replacement for human creativity and artistic talent. Instead, AI should be used to assist and augment human designers, allowing them to focus on the creative aspects of their work and explore new ideas and possibilities. Additionally, it’s important to consider the ethical implications of using AI in 3D art and architecture, and to ensure that AI-generated designs do not perpetuate existing biases and inequalities. By working together, human designers and AI algorithms can create truly innovative and transformative designs that push the boundaries of what’s possible.
AIMIR’s view on this is that AI will not replace our veteran 3D artists for sure! Our 3D professionals have gained valuable experiences that we believe AI will not take place. But we’re ready to use AI to elevate our 3D specialists’ job in order to create more powerful and impressive 3D rendering visuals for our clients.

Architectural commercial projects, or commercial construction projects require a deep understanding of the needs and goals of the business, as well as the technical and operational requirements of the building itself. Effective design and construction of commercial buildings can help businesses attract and retain customers, improve employee productivity, and create a positive impact on the surrounding community. At the same time, 3D architectural rendering services is the game-changer here. By providing accurate, realistic visuals of the designs, it helps architects design, visualize, and communicate their commercial projects effectively.
As the most populous state in the United States, California is known for its diverse geography and entertainment industry. Commercial architecture in California is diverse and dynamic, reflecting the state’s unique mix of urban and suburban landscapes, as well as its history of innovation and creativity.
We, as an architectural visualization company, have created tons of commercial projects located in California. They are innovative and inspiring at the same time. It’s a shame to cover them up, so we’ve picked 7 of them to share with you.
Located in Los Angeles, this 14-story office building in the Hollywood Boulevard Commercial and Entertainment District. The building fills the gap between the bigger commercial edifices located one block towards the east and its more diminutive historic counterparts, particularly the nearby Security Trust & Savings building (1920) which is covered in terra-cotta.
In fact, there are more than one stages for this project, because our client changed the design more than once. No matter what the updated design was, our 3D team responded promptly and workout out the results as fast as possible. In the end, these 3D renderings impressed the juries and the presentation went well. We love these renders along with our client.
In Los Angeles’ highly sought-after Miracle Mile, the redevelopment of Wilshire Courtyard creates a new, two-tower mixed-use destination from an old office complex and unused land. The design features of this structure include “fins” under the bridges linking the towers, green planting across the structure, and glazing façade of garage floors.
To bring the above features to life, our visuals emphasize on the texture of the façade, especially the glass quality. Meanwhile, our 3D artists recommended a twilight view to have better presentation of the glass material and human activities inside the buildings.
Situated between the Salesforce Tower and Waldorf Astoria, on 450 Mission Street, San Francisco, this tower is the new proposal for Mandarin Oriental. Covered with soft bronze metal, this façade of this tower makes it incredibly charming and standout among the neighborhood.
There are two renders: semi-aerial view for presentation and public viewing, and aerial view for Mandarin’s global marketing. Interestingly, in the semi-aerial view, we made all surrounding buildings transparent boxes. In this way, the main structure stands out in such a busy context.
This large glass sphere is planning to sit on the 8410 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles. As a public space providing a platform for people to occupy and interact with, the Sphere is also equipped with a bar at the back offering drinks and spaces to appreciate the view of the LA city. With LCD signs on the surface, it creates potential for cutting-edge technology as well as advertisement.
There is no better proof of our professionalism and capability than the fact that with our 3D renderings our client has won the Innovation & Technology in the Built Environment prize in Los Angeles Business Council’s (LABC) 51st Annual Architectural Awards for Sphere on Sunset project.
Located in Compton, California, Lifeline Education Charter Middle School is transforming the underused site into a new, two-story middle school for local community.
Our visuals use a clear view and a dawn view to demonstrate this school in different time of the day. Also, not only the classrooms, but also the shop and playground are vividly showed with various activities in exterior renders.
University of California, Berkeley (UCB) plans to have this new building for Goldman School of Public Policy, which for sure will be a landmark in the campus. This school has learning, research and collaboration spaces for their students. With a new front door on Hearst Avenue, GSPP promotes transparency and inviting interaction.
We chose a clear sky to demonstrate this dynamic structure. At the same time, our 3D team paid great attention to the surrounding context such as the landscape and the building next door. After applying photorealistic materials, rendering and post-production, the final results are a game-changer in our client’s presentation.
Andys Burgers is a restaurant in Chino, California. The architect uses Equitone for the façade, which is a through colored panel with no coating. This way, the façade has an honest, pure, and natural appearance. The restaurant has incredible amount of large floor-to-ceiling window walls, which keep the indoor space bright during the day.
In our interior renders, the layout is clearly seen as well as the kitchen, let along the beautiful views outside. Likewise, the exterior views demonstrate the structure in day and night views, both indicating a lively, happy restaurant with olive trees and bright red logotype.
That wraps up some of our commercial projects in California, USA. California is the third largest state and largest state economy among the U.S., let along the cultural diversity and prosperity. Commercial architecture in California is a vibrant and diverse field that includes many different building types and styles, that reflects the state’s unique blend of innovation, culture, and natural beauty.

In today’s digital age, businesses are competing to catch the attention of potential customers. With the rise of e-commerce and online shopping, visual presentation has become increasingly important in the consumer decision-making process. This is where 3D product rendering comes in. It is a digital technique used to create realistic representations of products in three dimensions. In this article, we will explore the benefits of 3D product rendering, its process, potential users, and why businesses should consider using it.
What is 3D Product Rendering?
3D product rendering is a digital technique used to create high-quality visualization of products. Generally, there are product rendering still images and animations. It involves creating a 3D model of a product using computer software and then adding texture, lighting, and other visual elements to make the product look as realistic as possible. The most important stage of the process is rendering, which generates high-quality visuals of the 3D model. The result is a series of images or an animation that can be used for marketing, advertising, and other promotional purposes.
The Process of 3D Product Rendering
The process of 3D product rendering involves several stages. The first step is to create a 3D model of the product using computer software. This software allows designers to create a detailed and accurate representation of the product in three dimensions. In fact, the software has been updating and advancing along with time, and we’ve another article about the best free modeling softwarehere.
Once the 3D model is created, the next step is to add materials and textures, lighting, and other visual elements to make the product look as realistic as possible. This process involves using software to add details such as shadows, reflections, and highlights to the product.
The following stage is rendering. It involves using rendering software to generate high-quality images of the 3D model. This process can take several hours or even days, depending on the complexity of the model and the level of detail required.
Post-production comes to the final stage. During this stage, our 3D artists make minor adjustments of the object or the scene to refine details. This is the last stage to guarantee a photorealistic product image.
Who Can Use 3D Product Rendering?
3D product rendering is not limited to any specific industry or company size. Any business that wants to showcase its products in a visually appealing and realistic way can benefit from 3D product rendering. Small businesses that cannot afford to produce physical prototypes can use 3D product rendering to create high-quality images of their products at a lower cost. Similarly, large businesses can use 3D product rendering to create realistic images of their products quickly and efficiently. For example, an inventor who comes up with a new concept for a motor engine, or a jewelry brand is issuing a new diamond ring design.
In particular, industries such as furniture, fashion, automotive, and electronics have found 3D product rendering to be particularly useful. These industries often produce products that are complex and require a high level of detail. 3D product rendering allows them to create accurate and realistic representations of their products without having to produce physical prototypes.
Why Use 3D Product Rendering?
There are several benefits to using 3D product rendering for businesses. Here are some of the most significant advantages:
3D product rendering is a cost-effective way to create high-quality images of products. It eliminates the need for expensive physical prototypes and reduces the costs associated with traditional photography. By using 3D product rendering, businesses can create high-quality images of their products without spending a lot of money on photography or physical prototypes.
3D product rendering allows businesses to create high-quality images of their products quickly and efficiently. The process is much faster than traditional photography and eliminates the need for product setup and photography equipment. This allows businesses to create images of their products faster and get them to market more quickly.
Flexibility to Design
With 3D product rendering, businesses can make changes to the product’s design and visual elements quickly and easily. This flexibility is particularly useful when creating images for marketing or advertising purposes, as businesses can make changes to the images based on customer feedback or new design iterations.
3D product rendering produces high-quality images that are consistent in terms of lighting, angle, and overall quality. This consistency is important when creating images for marketing or advertising purposes, as it ensures that all images of the product have the same level of quality and are visually appealing.
3D product rendering allows businesses to create images of their products from different angles, in use, or even create animations that demonstrate how the product works. This versatility makes it easier for businesses to showcase their products in different contexts and to different audiences.
3D product rendering allows businesses to showcase their products online, making them accessible to a global audience. Customers can view products in high detail from the comfort of their own homes, which is particularly beneficial during times when physical stores may be closed.
High-quality images of products can increase customer confidence and make them more likely to make a purchase. 3D product rendering allows businesses to create visually appealing and realistic images that can help drive sales.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, 3D product rendering also allows businesses to reduce the environmental impact associated with traditional product photography. By eliminating the need for physical prototypes and product setup, 3D product rendering reduces waste and lowers carbon emissions.
In conclusion, 3D product rendering is a valuable tool for businesses that want to showcase their products in a visually appealing and realistic way. It is a cost-effective, time-saving, and flexible alternative to traditional product photography that allows businesses to create high-quality images of their products quickly and efficiently. It is accessible to businesses of all sizes and is particularly beneficial for industries such as furniture, fashion, automotive, and electronics. The versatility and consistency of 3D product rendering make it a valuable addition to any business’s marketing and advertising toolkit. As the e-commerce industry continues to grow, businesses that invest in 3D product rendering will be well-positioned to attract and retain customers in the digital age.

Procurement method: open bidding
Source of funds: government investment
a. Project background
With the governance concept of “Beautiful China Initiative” proposed during the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the “five-sphere” pattern of “ecological civilization, economic development, political development, cultural development and social development” has been formed, setting “nostalgic mountains and waters in sight” as the standard of beautiful development. In order to further build a beautiful China, the CPC Zhejiang Committee and Zhejiang Provincial Government issued the Decision on Building a Beautiful Zhejiang to Create a Better Life and Opinions of the General Office of the People’s Government of Zhejiang Province on Accelerating the Building of Modern and Beautiful Counties in 2014, defining a new urbanization path of “people first, synergistic development of four modernizations, optimized layout, ecological civilization, and cultural heritage,” and proposing goals such as building a pilot area of the beautiful China initiative and a role model of Jiangnan water towns, and reflecting the charm of “poetic and picturesque Jiangnan,” etc. In doing so, we aim at building modern and beautiful counties with Jiangnan features and Zhejiang characteristics, and realize the beauty of green ecological environment, planning and design morphology, complete facilities and functions, suitability for living and working, and social stability and harmony.
Location map of city clusters in central Zhejiang.
As the CPC Zhejiang Committee and Zhejiang Provincial Government define a new urbanization path of “people first, synergistic development of four modernizations, optimized layout, ecological civilization, and cultural heritage,” the urban system planning of Zhejiang Province positions city clusters in central Zhejiang as a new fulcrum for the integration of central Zhejiang. Under the context of regional coordinated development, Dongyang should rely on its transportation road network that matures gradually, actively integrate into the regional economic network dominated by Jinyi Metropolitan Area, build a new fulcrum for the integrated development of the metropolitan area, share same-city development with Yiwu, complement each other’s advantages, and work together to build an economic belt in the metropolitan area, so as to build Dongyang into a modernized city with complete functions and comprehensive development, a provincial-level renowned historical and cultural city, an advanced manufacturing base in central Zhejiang and an ecological and livable land, a pilot site for transformation of cultural advantages, a demonstration area for reform and opening up coordination, and a template place for high-quality transformation and development.
In order to enhance the scientific and reasonable territorial space planning of Dongyang City, effectively guide the urban development of Dongyang City, lead the future urban construction, and realize the preparation requirements of “operable, experiential and supervised urban design,” the CPC Dongyang Municipal Committee and Dongyang government put forward the overall regional planning of overall urban design. In combination with the demarcation results of three districts and three lines issued by the Ministry of Natural Resources, the six streets in the downtown area are determined as the planning range, and the scheme solicitation event of Overall Urban Design Integration and Enhancement and Downtown Areas Detailed Urban Design of Dongyang City is specifically held.

Downtown area detailed urban design scope
i. Detailed urban design scope in the solicitation stage, in accordance with the key areas scope of the downtown area (no more than 12 square kilometers in total) defined by the design units in Stage II of the design solicitation, is determined by the expert group and the Host in a comprehensive manner, with a total area of about 12-15 square kilometers.
ii. In the solicitation, the design development scope of the selected unit is from the junction between Dongyang and Yiwu to Zhanqian Road of Jinhua-Ningbo Railway, from Nanshan Mountain to Beishan Mountain (including Shanglu Block and Civic Center Block), with an area of about 84 square kilometers.
Detailed urban design scope of downtown area
Nowadays, due to industrialization-driven urbanization and rapid economic growth, bottlenecks and problems of urban development have gradually emerged with the rapid expansion of construction framework of Dongyang downtown area, such as vague spatial mode of landscape city and gradual inundation of urban culture; urban functional plates are loose and not compact enough; urban image and style are inferior and lack of iconic urban business cards; the construction of urban industrial platform is poor with implicit space of three industries; the areas along the Dongyang River only focus on the construction of the landscape belt but lack an overall landscape coordination of the two banks of one river, and the vitality needs to be improved, etc. All these problems are constraining the further upgrade of the overall quality of Dongyang City.
The solicitation should be based on the three districts and three lines initially demarcated in the City’s current land spatial planning scheme, and focus on solving, but not limited to, the aforementioned problems. Through problem sort-out, target positioning, strategy formulation, action plan, project library and economic estimation, it will provide the orientation for Dongyang’s future urban development and guidelines for statutory plan revision, urban renewal and near-term development and construction. Objectives in the three following aspects are to be realized specifically.
Conduct overall planning and unified coordination with relevant plans in Dongyang City. Based on the history and city-wide construction of Dongyang and combined with new regional development situation and local actual demands, form a more consensual urban development prospect and overall spatial framework of orderly and flexible development with international vision and forward-looking thinking. Focus on the control of environmental pattern and spatial system, with attention paid to undertaking the relevant mature plot planning at the same time and integration and interpretation carried out from the perspective of urban design.
Combined with the city image shaping action and space optimization design like acupuncture, delve into natural ecological features and historical and cultural characteristics of Dongyang City. Deeply study the design standards of functional business formats, public space, public facilities, space morphology, transportation organization and other aspects that are compatible with the needs of urban development, improve urban cultural vitality and ecological livability advantages, attract innovative talent and gather innovative vitality. Pay attention to technological innovations in green ecology, smart city and other fields, with refined space design and prominent features of various scenes, so as to demonstrate future urban space quality and work and life style of Dongyang, and showcase the style of urban age.
Advocate operable, experiential and implementable deliverables, customize practical and viable management and operation paths in line with the administrative system framework, and provide effective and unequivocal content guidance and control indicators for the work of “holistic, all elements, and all coverage” of national land space planning. Provide the decision-making mechanism, action plan and construction temporal sequence guidance that can instruct the update and subsequent implementation, form the action plan and implementation project library to facilitate the Project siting and department allocation for organization and implementation.
As the regional development environment evolves quickly in the new era, Dongyang is faced by increasingly urgent need of city quality upgrade. In recent years, Dongyang has done massive planning work on urban transformation and development and blueprint conception. At the same time, a large number of corresponding special research work is also being carried out in an orderly manner, including the layout planning of various cultural, educational, sports and health facilities based on urban construction, the green space system planning based on the construction of public open space system, the road network special planning that outlines the future traffic network at the macro level, and the action planning of renowned historical and cultural city targeting the old town of Wuning, etc. At the more micro level of plot development and construction, combined with the needs of market-oriented operation and government operation management, a large amount of detailed design and research work of small and micro plots has been carried out, fully reflecting the enthusiasm and foresight of government administration departments.
In the face of multiple planning intelligence deliverables, the solicitation event cores upon comprehensively coordinating with relevant plannings of Dongyang City, draws effective and feasible parts based on systematic sort-out, generalization and summarization. In combination with the new regional development situation and the actual local demands, a more consensual overall urban design development orientation, target strategy, layout structure and spatial morphology will be formed. To be implemented and operated via the operational capacity of the administration authorities, the solicitation will effectively lead the coordinated advancement of future urban development and construction of Dongyang downtown area and various management work.
a. Integration and enhancement of overall urban design
Adhering to the people-centered design concept, tracing back the path of Dongyang’s ancient city operation, with natural ecology as the basis, “Sanxiang” culture as the soul, characteristic industries as the source, and citizens’ experience as the orientation, clarify the image positioning of the development of Dongyang’s downtown area, formulate the overall urban design space framework, overall landscape framework, morphology pattern, public space system and style positioning and other overall urban design strategies, in a bid to create a livable space that shows distinctive features, inherits the old while accepting the new and is oriented toward people for Dongyang in the future.
