项目背景 | Project Background
Jining, Shandong Province, is the home of Confucius and Mencius and the country of etiquette. The extensive and profound Confucian culture gave birth to the unique and elegant temperament of the site. Jining Economic Development Zone, Shandong Province – east to Jiaxin Road, north to Hengxiang Road, West to Jiahe Road, south to the third stage wetland landscape area. It is the main entrance from the main urban area to the new area, and undertakes the function of etiquette display of Jining New Portal.
设计历程 | Design process
At the beginning of the design, we fully excavated the local culture of Jiaxiang County, where Jining Jingkai District is located, which is the father-in-law of Wang Xizhi. When he was young, he was lonely and poor, but he was famous for Confucianism and elegance in the Qing Dynasty and should not be named by the court for his exposition of classics and his hard work and chanting. The existing Disaster Tie is deposited in Chunhua Ge Tie, which coincides with Confucius’ statement that “prosperity in poetry is based on ritual and happiness”. Ultimately, our park was named as Xijianhu Park. The whole design revolves around the spirit of Xijianhu culture.
The Xijianhu Park bears three visions of the project for urban development: Inheritance of Culture–Brilliant Cultural Coordinates of Famous Cities; Starting the Future–A Model of Jining Modern Park; Innovation Portal–Waterfront Portal Garden of New District
Highlights strategy: Cultural regeneration, the essence of traditional culture, with modern techniques to refine and deconstruct, re-deduce, through multi-dimensional cultural display. Ecological sustainability, using sponge city technology to create breathing parks. Vigorous engine, create a vigorous waterfront space, use modern scientific and technological means to strengthen the interaction between people and parks, and provide personalized venues for people’s diversified activities.
▼滨水活力空间，a vigorous waterfront space
Confucian and Mencius culture has a long history, giving Jining a rich cultural heritage. In the design process, we are deeply influenced by Confucian and Mencius culture and Xijian culture, and in the venue to do a poetry, calligraphy, etiquette and music as the main line of the design continuation.
▼连贯的场地流线，the continuous circulation
诗无界 | Poetry without Borders
In the middle of the main entrance square, a mirror overlapping water view is used to guide the open surface of the Great Lakes. The whole picture is as quiet as a poem, inviting people to go deep. When the shadows of trees are reflected in the water, they are connected with the distant Lake landscape, giving people a sense of boundlessness.

▼湖面山水相接，lake and landscape
Considering the classical connotation and cultural rebirth in the context of modern design, we quoted weatherproof steel plate representing industrial characteristics of Kai District as the material, drilling, drawing and other processing to create a characteristic landscape wall with a sense of science and technology. At the same time, we combined the classical inscription of the Analects of Confucius and the brief introduction of the life of Xi Jian to build the culture of Xijianhu Park layer by layer.
Abandoning traditional practices, we hope that people can really stay in the lake and look at things equally before they can see things clearly. The sunken viewing passage passes through the water surface and appreciates the aquatic plants on both sides from a lower angle, creating a personal and quiet landscape experience. At the same time, we can observe the plants and fish under the water through the fish glass surface, feel the nature without boundary, and experience the ecological landscape more stereoscopically and omni-directionally.

书无边 | Books are boundless
The overall material of the three-dimensional gallery we built is weatherproof steel plate, reflecting the industrial color. This paper reinterprets the precise sentences of Bamboo Slips and the Analects of Confucius with modern expressive techniques. The Gallery often gives people a sense of unexhausted interest and a better understanding of the boundlessness of culture.

立于礼 | Standing on ceremony
Creative design is used to combine the large curved ramp with the intention of the unfolding Yunqiao, and its form highlights the theme of “dream”. We hope that all of us will not forget our first thoughts and stand on ceremony in this fast-moving world. In the park, the yacht wharf combines with the waterfront architecture and is located at the lake side. It has a good view of the landscape. The architecture draws on the form of yacht, which makes the building suspended on the water surface. It is like a yacht flying over the lake. It is very dynamic and identifiable.
We collected all kinds of sounds from the park, the sound of leaves rubbing, the sound of birds crowing, the sound of people running.. Finally, we found that children’s laughter is the most beautiful sound. On the basis of hard playground, children’s playground joins the ecological playground, so that children can get more contact with grassland, stones and branches, and be close to nature.
The theme of the venue is the memories of the post-80s generation, looking for the games of that era: flying chess, millionaires, jumping houses and so on. Let adults and children experience their childhood games again.
Art interesting activities and aquatic plants are integrated. Add the concept of art flower exhibition. An interesting and popular art flower exhibition of aquatic plants is formed by combining interesting aquatic Tingbu, aquatic trestle, rockery falling water and hydrodynamic facilities.

It can effectively improve the environment of the district and improve the quality of life of residents. This is a scene of the opening District forgetting to forge ahead and create a beautiful new city.
