The reason that this project was a success was because of its core idea  -  the traces of history would persevere. Based off of 'the memory of water', the drawings of the project is to focus on the ecological aspect of the area. The project was to renovate the agricultural river and transform it into urban drainage systems. The road system above the water system network would be refurbished and renovated at the same time as it would be retained, allowing it to be integrated into the city. The building blocks would be placed as a triple-landscape structure, wherein each block itself would be a scene that seeks the 'memory of water'.
