After a couple of days in Palestine, I am really impressed by how much fun it is to simply be here. There's a resilience, a welcoming spirit, and a warmth that is striking.

Protecting Ecosystems + Providing for A New Urban Community: Qunli Stormwater Wetland Park

Protecting Ecosystems + Providing for A New Urban Community: Qunli Stormwater Wetland Park | Social innovation network | Scoop.it

From the architect. Turenscape was commissioned to design a wetland park of 34.2 hectares in the middle of a new town, which is listed as a protected regional wetland. The site is surrounded on four sides by roads and dense development. As such, water sources into this former wetland were being cut, and the wetland was under the threat. Turenscape’s strategy was to transform the dying wetland into a ‘green sponge’ – an urban stormwater park, which will not only rescue the disappearing wetland, but will also provide multiple ecosystems services for the new urban community.


The challenges are obvious: How can a disappearing wetland be preserved when its ecological and biological processes have been cut off by the urban context? How can such a wetland ecosystem be designed to provide multiple ecosystems for the city? And what is the economic way to deal with such a landscape? The solution was to transform the wetland into a multi-functional stormwater park that will collect, filtrate, store stormwater and infiltrate to the aquifer, whilst being productive and life supporting, providing new recreational and aesthetic experiences for the city.
