项目地点:中国 天津




Tuanbo Water Town is located in the central part of ‘Tuanbo New Town’ which is one of the 11 New Towns in Tianjin. Total area is about 14 square km with 50,000-80,000 population.

This project is guided by the principles of ‘ecological priority, mixed-use function, TOD guidance, competitive leisure integration, overall positioning and coordination’ and is to create a livable water town with ‘Water as the carrier, green as the network, the modern and diversified patterns of life as the clue, and administration, education, sports, commercial, culture, living and leisure functions’.

The planning structure is based on the basic urban space of ‘Multi-axis and multi-island, primary and secondary harmonization” with the main central axis of this area being formed by Tuanbo Avenue, and multiple connect lines forming a secondary axis. Different functions, including; sports, leisure, administration, education, business and residence are combined to form an island layout that is connected through the city road and landscape green belt networks, with the water bodies forming natural boundaries between each functional island. Among them, the central part of the base is surrounded by the inner lake to create the core of the central waterfront commercial district, and the periphery is distributed with functional islands with different structural features.

Urban design creates the central business district, central administrative district, education and scientific research district, commercial centre, multimedia industrial park, water theme park, tourist resort, waterfront residential area, and other key nodes.
