dbox for Foster + Partners
The plan focused on creating fully integrated and interconnected connections between existing transport links and the new arts district. Transportation strategies include new metro stations, walking paths and footbridges, ferries across the water, and a fleet of eco minibuses within the district itself. City Park is being designed to achieve carbon neutral status through highly efficient buildings and low-energy infrastructure. The low-energy design includes district cooling/heating, grey water recycling, energy recovery systems for sewage, recycling, a waste-to-energy plant, and provisions for solar and wind energy generation.
