Research and Application of Urban Landscape Planning in Slow-moving System—Based on the Design of Wujin District in Changzhou

University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för planering och mediedesign

Abstract:

With the rapid development of motor vehicles in our country, a lot of traffic and environmental problems are triggered. As a result, more and more cities begin to focus on sustainable traffic development. Slow-moving traffic has also become people's focus of interest, though many domestic scholars have proposed various methods for slow-moving system construction with many of them put in practices in many cities, the main research direction is the traffic function and operation mechanism of slow-moving system rather than the environmental construction of that, so researches on slow-moving landscape, slow-moving facilities and their relation with the neighboring land use remain insufficient. Standing at the visual point of urban planning and design, taking into account the relation between slow-moving system and urban life, this thesis attempts to thoroughly eliminate citizens' difficulties and troubles in slow-moving, meet their slow-moving requirements such as safety, convenience and comfortableness as well as available slow-moving ways. By satisfying these requirements, it also aims to finally achieve the goal of free slow-moving and to develop a set of planning and construction methods for building slow-moving system in Wujin District. Proceeding from the three perspectives of slow-moving network, slow-moving landscape and slow-moving facilities, this thesis summarizes the key points and defects of existing theoretical knowledge through literature review. Moreover, by in-depth analysis of some typical cases, methods for slow-moving construction are deduced. Finally, based on the actuality of Wujin District, giving consideration to its natural, historical and cultural resources, methods for slow-moving system construction are applied to the core area of Wujin District. Through the research in this paper, it is expected to eliminate the gaps between traffic planning and urban design, and to shift the attentions on the traffic planning of slow-moving system to the design of slow-moving space and environment, while specific design methods are also proposed here. Academically, this thesis is also anticipated to take a positive impact on the future discussions of slow-moving system construction.
