The landscape area inside the red line of the demonstration area is 7417 square meters, and the landscape area outside the red line is 33,944 square meters. We reproduced in the concept of “landscape collection” ancient elegant demeanour, starting from the fountain of Nantong city culture, the spirit of landscape in space scene, looking for the city’s unique cultural imprint in the wandering, to Nantong this ancient city landscape artistic conception, the humanistic spirit, culture collection in the collection of meditation, in combination with plane layout of the Langshan mountain Zhuntu Temple,  create a rich level of seven-yard translation into the site, embedded with the “treasure of seven town pavilions” to tell the thousand-year history and time changes. The nature and humanity of Nantong city are connected in mountain,  water,  stone and woods to create a natural landscape collection. The writing is based on nature and higher than nature. The design focuses on natural beauty, pays attention to balance the weight of the writing between man and nature, and pursues the presentation effect of “matching the sky”.

Entering the collection, you can see the development of Nantong city and feel the flow of historical context. The treasure of the seven town pavilions integrates the unique cultural elements of rivers, seas, rivers and mountains, contains the cultural heritage and natural charm, and connects the cultural imprint of Nantong city in the spatial translation of seven scenes and seven landscapes. At the end of the tour, the deep artistic conception of “how deep is the courtyard” is a long aftertaste.
