In the field of hope

We hope to create a “Field of Hope” in Qianhai. People came here and built their own memories in the island.
That means, through constructing an enjoyable environment we can extend the commercial value of Qianhai.

Mountains surround the entire island covered by corps.
Thus, people who come here will see the natural environment, relax and enjoy the beautiful view of farming field.
In addition, using the Natural Precipitation Collection, we could create the Clean Water System.
The fresh sea wind will be used as energy, and sunlight will be converted to solar system and be stored.

Buildings in Qianhai will be constructed beneath fields.
Therefore, the self-sufficient ecosystem will be used to create a comfortable indoor environment.
The interior of the island is a flexible exhibition hall, where Qianhai and its future will be discussed.

The two vertical farms inside the island reflect the operation of the ecosystem.
They provide every person, who visits here, an opportunity to participate in the whole process from the cultivation to the harvest.
Meanwhile, children can feel the beauty of natural.

The entire structure will not only become a self-sufficient life organization, but also provide a suitable growth condition for a variety of crops.
Each sower will receive the fruits sown by others few months ago.
Every sower seeds his or her hope, and every fruit represents other citizen’s expectation.
