Karamay East Lake Park Primary Schematic Design

Overview

Atkins' East Lake design connects the old and new areas of Karamay through a distinctive landscape, building on the tradition of water festivals whilst introducing and enhancing ecological provision unique to Xinjiang.

The design takes inspiration from Karamay’s natural and historical heritage, with particular reference to the cities importance as an oil reserve. Building on Karamay’s history Atkins’ proposal looks to protect and enhance the local biodiversity whilst providing an attractive destination not only for locals but tourists also. Atkins’ idea was to offset any new built form with an area for nature, so Incorporating a landmark bridge with new lake islands, recreational piers with functional wetlands; all contributing to the ideal of ‘city living’ in harmony with nature.

According to “Mountain and Water” from Chinese culture, Atkins designed the following nine items: a central lake, leisure and fitness area, resort, adventure park, cultural display area, lakeside business, Northern Xinjiang Garden, entrance plaza and wetlands. “The benevolent enjoy mountains; the wise enjoy water”.
