Sponge City Pioneer

Kongjian Yu’s innovative “sponge city” designs are transforming urban landscapes. By creating cities that soak up downpours, his designs are replacing flooded streets with lush green spaces, and allowing rainwater to nourish cities. Yu’s firm, Turenscape, is already turning heads with a project in Bangkok that transformed a wasteland into a network of lakes and wetlands. Over 70 cities in China have implemented his designs, with the government aiming for 80% of cities to become absorbent by 2030. The Sponge City system is inspired by nature’s ability to absorb and release water, transforming streets into green havens with mango trees growing where once concrete reigned.
