Project Name: Chongming Island Plan
Client: Chongming Local Government, Shanghai
Collaborator: Sasaki Associates, Inc., Watertown, MA USA
Design: 2003
Plan Area: 7908 hectares

The plan of Chongming Island in 2020 is a collaboration between AGER and Sasaki. We integrated agricultural uses, marine industries, residential places and tourism destinations within the island ecosystem to create an environment where people and nature can coexist harmoniously. Ecological diversity contributes substantially to the healthy development of the industries and improvement of people's living environment. It also serves as the foundation of the tourist industry. The "green city" philosophy is embedded in every aspect of the plan. Retaining its unique natural and cultural resources as recommended in the plan, Chongming Island can become a shining example of the harmonious integration of industry, housing, and the ecosystem.
