With the theme of interweaving green corridors around the city, exploring integration of urban and suburb areas, and stimulating the city’s peripheral vitality space, Longgang District will build the “New Municipal Administration” engineering model project and improve the urban environment in an all-round way for a high-quality city proper suitable for residence, industry and tourism. With conventional municipal public facilities along railway lines, fire passages, and urban roads, new highlights of urban space quality improvement lie in building a pleasant urban micro-environment through the power of design and application of “New Municipal Administration” idea! In such a case, the Bureau of Public Works of Longgang District will launch the first “New Municipal Administration” engineering projects, give full play to the advantages of Longgang’s ecological background, build a number of backbone ecological corridors, realize the interconnection of ecological way, green way and eco-corridors, and build the ecological picture of “blue interwoven into green surrounded by mountains and rivers”.
“Forest Affinity Program” is a key theme first proposed by the Bureau of Public Works of Longgang District to build the new municipal administration engineering model. The first five landscape projects will be launched in conjunction with the competition for conceptual scheme design in the hope of breaking the stereotype of monotonous and tedious municipal facilities in the past, endowing a modern, engaging and diverse sense of design, fully tapping into the cultural value connotation of public facilities, and providing a new model for the design of municipal facilities in Longgang District and Shenzhen!
