hangzhou (7)hangzhou (1)hangzhou (4)hangzhou (5)GreenWorks as part of Team Oregon in collaboration with SOM, developed a Master Plan for the Historic Canal through Hangzhou, China.  The 1200-year-old canal flows over 100 miles north-south from Beijing to Hangzhou.  The canal will be redeveloped as a centerpiece of Hangzhou, celebrating the ecology, history and urban vitality of this historic city.  New stormwater facilities will be developed in each of four canal segments each with interpretive and recreational amenities to help cleanse and purify the water in the canal.
