1 Guangzhou, China's ecological future city After drawing the northern district of Guangzhou, the U.S. firm Heller Manus Architects was selected to redevelop the area south or Southern Axis. Guangzhou will become the future green city of China. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

2 A new urban center Both projects north and south axis are complementary. They aim to give China the third largest city a new modern downtown and environmentally friendly. Guangzhou now has 10 million inhabitants. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

3 Station Exchange In the northern part of the city, the architects designed a multimodal station to serve the business district. The East Railway Station includes a railway station and bus station. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

4 To walk The urban development project called South axis extends over 14.7 square kilometers. The architectural firm Heller Manus Architects put on walking to counter the dominance of road traffic in the city. New pedestrian routes will be created to facilitate the movement of people. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

5 Light Rail: a tram to Guangzhou The city will soon have its network of tram or Light Rail. The course will be organized around the central park and lake Haizhu. It will link the city from north to south. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

6 A large urban park The redevelopment project is designed around the large central park that architects call "green belt". The overall project should be completed in ten years. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

7 Pedestrian plazas During the redevelopment of the north, or business district, several places have been created to ventilate the space. Planting of trees, lawns and other pedestrian plazas now roam the city, its buildings and sports arena. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

8 Guangzhou: the twenty-first century city The project extends to both the interior, around the Business District, and on both banks of the Pearl River, or Zhu Jiang. In the far south, we can see the Guangzhou TV Tower completed in Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of

9 Lingnan culture and low buildings Lingnan culture is a tradition in the Guangzhou region. It places people at the heart of nature. The shores of Lake Haizhu, the center of the plan, will be redeveloped with traditional Chinese gardens and contemporary gardens. The new buildings will be predominantly low-rise and low density for a harmonious whole. Heller Manus Architects Courtesy of
