Description: GCH and MulvannyG2 architects collaborated to produce three master planning concepts for the City of Yulin, each with unique natural features founding the planning organization and community character. Planning for this project aimed to elevate the city's identity while activating travel, commerce and cultural industry within Yulin. The project area sits at the intersection of five provinces and boasts numerous sites of historical significance including the fractured Great Wall of China, Zhen Bei Fortress, Red Stone Gorge engraved cliffs, and ancient tombs from the Han Dynasty. Each proposed planning concept uniquely merges the existing natural and historic conditions with new tourism facilities, retail/commercial, residential, hotel, and outdoor recreation.
