Résumé

After decades of being banished from urban areas, water is now becoming an increasingly significant feature in cities, whether it is the integration of natural water courses into the built environment or rainwater management and the incorporation of design features in urban design. In the light of climate change with all challenges for small and large cities, the integration of sustainable waterscapes rise more and more attention of all professions, related to city design. Looking beyond just bold concepts it's shown that there are many real built examples how Eco city concepts are applied in reality. This book reveals the wide variety of possibilities for using water as a creative element in the city, in art, in the landscape and architecture. The works are organized in seven categories and include large-scale master plans, eco districts, river restorations, urban plazas and parks, residential schemes, art and fountains. The project featured are: the design for Culture Park Tianjin in China, the river restoration of Kallang River as Bishan Park in Singapore, bold design solutions for Queens Botanical Garden in New York, the schemes for Telecom Park, Taipei, the Mixed-Lifestyle Development of Changchun Vanke and the design for the new Harbour in Offenbach, Germany.
