Langfang Smart EcoCity

800sqkm | Langfang, Hebei Province, China

The eco smart city approach focuses on existing cities, not greenfield sites. Langfang’s real environmental catastrophe is the sinking of land, and the masterplan moves to stop the sinking by threading blueway water recharge strips into the heart of the city. Combined with transit-oriented development, greenbelts, agricultural heritage, wetland parks, and smart infrastructure, the plan provides the City of Langfang tools to attract the next generation of green industries.
