Wenying Lake, Datong

A catalyst for development, Wenying Lake responds to industrialisation and population growth by providing ecological, social and sustainable solutions to design and planning

Wenying Lake studies the re-establishment of ecological habitats and their relationship with the wider community. The lake edge presents a variety of interactions with water, weaving and transitioning in elevation and plan whilst encouraging flora and fauna to prosper. The early establishment of this large scale park puts in place social and ecological infrastructure the city can later draw on and evolve with.
