of urban vitality and industrial innovation, the experiment started from remolding the urban structure in macroscopic scale,
and went into constructing urban block at the medium and micro level. It was tried to create a clear, high-density, smallscale,
mixed-function, diversified and harmonious waterfront space, so as to transform Lingang from water landscape to a
new water town that can support innovative economic activities and the daily life of citizens.
