AbstractWetland are valuable habitat in Hong Kong. These area have been threatened by rapid urban development in Hong Kong for the past 50 years. Since they handover of Hong Kong from the British ruling back to China, the frontier land have been left untouched for many years. And this land is precious and shall be treated with care in order to preserve the ecological valuable area for our future generation to enjoy. The design thesis would response to issues concerning with drainage channel design in the rural Man Kam To district and current ecological stream park/wetland compensation mitigation in Hong Kong. A study area in Shenzhen River, near Man Kam To Border Control Point is selected as demonstration site for drainage edge treatment together with storm-water treatment to restore the natural edge of the area. In addition, an algae bioreactor treatment design will be incorporated as a vision to use new technology to provide renewable energy and clean air for a self sustainable design. It aims to establish an innovative landscape solution the current over engineered river channel treatment and to balance between developing the economic growth from the Shenzhen Area while preserving ecological valuable area as a greenbelt in Hong Kong for future sustainable development use.
