Tianjin WIT Riverside Park

TEDA WIT is located in the northern suburb of Tianjin, China, with close proximity to New Hangu Center. WIT is designed to serve a population of high-tech workers and their families. The Riverside Park is part of an urban open space system master planned by SOM, which includes “WIT Experience” including a 15 ha Town Center Project and the 47 ha “WIT” Riverside Park.

According to this scheme, the park is divided into three layers: The City Plaza, The Urban Park and The Nature.

The City Plaza Layer serves as an extension of city functions, with public squares, multi-use plazas and amenities buildings such as clubhouses, educational facilities and retail shops.

The Urban Park Layer contains most of park activity zones including a sports park, a childrens playground, an amphitheater, a historic park and a botanical garden for native plants. A bike and jogging route is also planned in this zone.

The Nature Layer has two main components, a forest zone and a working vineyard. Located on a higher topography, the nature layer serves as a green background for the park.

The aesthetics of the park is inspired by the rural landscape found in Northern China, with geometric patterns and tall poplar groves as dominating elements.
