Harbin Eco City

Project: Harbin Eco City
Location: Harbin, China
Client: Abu Dhabi Investment House

This development is part of a new mixed-use development in North-East china. This Eco-park will be the central hub for a residential development situated on the other end of the Island. As the weather in Harbin is quite extreme in the winters, the project is developed as a series of 7 large enclosures, parts of which can be opened up in the summer. A stream runs through these enclosures, offering a variety of natural landscapes.

Each of these enclosures has its own theme, ranging from Aquatic, Rainforest, Snow and Desert. Vertex designed the attractions inside these enclosures, keeping in mind the needs of the animals as well as the visitors.

In association with RTKL.
