Luchaogang new city
The town of Luchaougang will be the reference city for the new international port of Shanghai-Yang Shang, which in 2020 will become the biggest port of the world. Includes a huge Industrial Distry-Park to service the new Container Terminal.
The masterplan designs the urban structure, the infrastructures, the land use distribution, the open space system for this New City of 300,000 inhabitants.
Luchaogang is located 30 Km to the south of Shanghai, on the edge between the countryside and the sea, becoming the element of junction between these two natural environments. The new town redraws the existing system of canals, enhancing its vocation as water city, like a Venice of Far East.
