Man-Built Islands Dongqian Lake | Ningbo China | HASSELL

Dongqian Lake, a water reservoir supplying the residents of Ningbo, requires regular dredging which results in a large quantity of by-product. The local authorities recognised an opportunity to use this by-product for the creation of a man-made island within the lake. The Ningbo Planning Bureau for Dongqian Lake Tourist and Holiday Resort invited a select group of consultants to provide conceptual proposals for the development of an island precinct.
