Poetry Painting Town is located at Pujiang County, Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province. Situated inside Xianhua Mountain Resort, the architecture is actually inspired by One Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains, a painting by Wang Ximeng, and its design reminds people of the verses saying, “If one wants to have fertile fields and a spacious residence, one should lay the foundation in mountains or by the river, where there are natural waters and woods. In this way, one can have an extensive yard for activities in the front and a garden for fruits and vegetables in the rear.” Centering on the development of calligraphy and painting, lifestyle services, farming and rural tourism, the architects manage to build a unique modern rural town on slopes.
Tucked in the orchards and farms on slopes, each individual courtyard residence features a traditional Jiangnan garden style. The façade design is a combination of traditional Chinese architectural elements and modern aesthetics. To meet the needs of modern life, the architects make innovative efforts to optimize the design. Based on conditions such as sunlight, slope aspect and hydrological features, the architects dot the site with buildings to save land resources. With gentle slopes between land parcels, and roads connecting different residences, the concern about height differences is addressed. In the front and back of each residence, there is a vegetable garden and an orchard, enabling each household to experience the traditional farming life.
Phases Ⅰto Ⅲ as well as the center of the town form an enclosure, in the center of which are public orchards and flower fields. From each part of the development one can have a good view of and a convenient access to the natural sceneries. Phase 2 lies in the east of the project and adjoins Baozhang Temple. With the Neighborhood Center as the supporting amenity, it is secluded and serene with unique natural sceneries.
The center of Poetry Painting Town is characterized by breathtaking sceneries and a wealth of calligraphers and painters. It is an important cradle for arts in Pujiang known as the Hometown of Calligraphy and Painting. The architectural design of the town perfectly combines cultural elements with living functions, and the primitive rural features with the urban civilization to create a place in mountains that invites an enriched cultural lifestyle. Besides, by utilizing the abundant agriculture and forestry resources to create rice fields, orchards, tea farms and model zones for technology and agriculture, the architects succeed in creating a pastoral complex and farming culture park that is differentiated from others.
The town center is located at the entrance of the main road of the project. It is divided into four major parts, including the poetry and painting art center, the poetry and painting culture street, the life service street, and the street of agriculture, forestry and flower conservatories. Besides, it integrates surrounding natural resources to create beautiful sceneries. The whole project provides convenient amenities and promotes the culture of poetry and painting. It is the crowning glory of the characteristic town.
