Planning a High-Performance,
Sustainable City in China

Wenzhou Lingni Master Plan
Wenzhou, China

Our Wenzhou master plan weaves together natural elements and infrastructure to produce a high performance, sustainable city.

HOK’s competition plan incorporates the potential of the site to create a meaningful urban fabric while protecting sensitive ecosystems along the rapidly developing coastline. A mixed-use strategy integrates dense urban fabric, productive landscape and vibrant communities into catalysts that activate the site.

The master plan accommodates seasonal and climatic adaptations to the coastal river delta environment. This flexibility gives the city resilience to adapt to tidal and technological changes.

By synthesizing market demands into a plan that respects current and future ecosystems, the city will attract investors while promoting a high quality of life. The integration of landscape and urban density creates a model of sustainable development.
