Zhongshan Road is a 9.8 km long major public infrastructure redevelopment project running through the heart of Ningbo. In 2015, recognizing its poor functionality and condition, the City engaged landscape architects to act as co-prime consultants, partnering with transportation engineers to conceive a new multi-modal, multi-dimensional urban corridor for Ningbo.
This project is Landscape Architecture in China – big, bold and trans formative at a city scale.

Zhongshan Road runs through the geographic center of Ningbo and is the cityʼs most historic transportation route with a history spanning thousands of years, closely connected to the original Silk Road. The landscape architects were selected to undertake the redesign of a central 9.8 KM stretch of road which passes through two distinct areas and responds to existing or planned land uses within each: the historic zone; the CBD zone and; two residential zones, bracketing east and west ends of the project.

The objective was to ensure that Zhongshan Roadʼs premier stature was immediately identifiable and that it imbued the spirit and character of Ningbo. The team wanted to respect the Roadʼs history while adding a clear contemporary design layer, ultimately delivering a linear public space that was legible and coherent, safe and comfortable, durable, beautiful, full of delight and with a story to tell.

Much of the modern Chinese city is dominated by automobile-clogged transportation arteries, a direct result of ever-expanding urban populations. To make matters worse a general preference is given to the car. Ningboʼs city planning department looked to the redevelopment of Zhongshan Road as an opportunity to break this cycle. Recognizing an efficient street to handle traffic was needed, they also insisted that it be more pedestrian-oriented and act as a cultural corridor. Project boundaries were expanded to claim adjacent parcels of land for parks and plazas. The city incorporated anew subway and new at-grade bus services with dedicated lanes all needing to be woven into the landscape architecture.

The project was completed in 2-1/2 years- start to finish. This was fast even in Chinese terms and to complicate mattersduring construction, the road was still expected to carry daily traffic, all businesses remained open and all residentialfrontages were fully functional.

The landscape architects were responsible for all grading, planting, paving, site furnishing, pavilions, bus shelters, lightingand coordinating public art. Generally the design stretched from building face to building face.

The paving strategy utilized locally sourced thick, large-scale stone modules and curbs to ensure longevity. The resultant design is simple, robust and a nod to the Roadʼs historic stone paving.
The numerous subway stations were key nodes to take advantage of and were designed as places for people to inhabit.Public art, seating, kiosks and pavilions were often organized around these heavily pedestrianized spaces. One of the first challenges faced by the landscape architects was to convince the city on the value of preserving as manyexisting mature Camphor trees as possible. A survey was undertaken, resulting in recommendations for roadwayadjustments. Through careful grading and layout design, 948 trees were preserved and another 2,640 were added.

The success of this project draws on the urban energy coming from the daily life of users; pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. It honours Ningboʼs past and celebrates its future, providing spaces for people of all ages and interests to engage in.
