PROJECT SUMMARY

Heart of Suzhou Creek ecosystem revitalization

The project, Heart of Suzhou Creek ecosystem revitalization, analyzed the impacts of flooding and pollution on this important waterway.

Inspired by the workings of the heart, the visionary idea involves diverting water into a landscaped texture which controls the varying water level and purifies its content by a process of phyto-remediation.
