Xiangsheng Village, Chengdu
Throughout China agricultural villages continue to flux into the big city. To speed up the satellite small towns to relief the pressure of metropolises, Xinjin county’s Xingyi Town was identified as one of the first “model modern garden city of the world” because of its excellent agricultural and natural resources. Xiangsheng organic farm was established on the north side of Xingyi Town while on the south side sits its town center. Pubao Garden, in the middle of the two, is a continuously planned 4A scenery zone. The town cluster is connected by the surrounding ring roads with several parcels of lands planned for future use according to Ebenezer Howard’s theory of “Garden City”.
Combining the ideal of organic agriculture and country dwelling in the garden, the master plan includes the dwelling types of villas, row house, duplexes to realize the concept of modern rural living. The residential areas are supported by organic commercial street, theme ranch, hotel, business center and kindergarten, together with Pubao garden to build a tourist and educational dream land. For the residential area, tiers of pedestrian walkways are planned for the access to the villas while waterscape with peninsula is designed to divide the villas and the row houses.
With this concept, a series of such parcels will continue to develop to realize a true modern city.
