Introduction: In order to bring innovation to traditional water conservancy projects that focus on flood control of watercourses,” Hoowave Resilient Township and Waterfront Landscape Design International Competition” intends to optimize the spatial landscape, humanistic beauty, landscape ecology, and local revitalization of water conservancy projects and their surrounding areas through comprehensive and cross-field design integration, to build an amenity-oriented environment and amenity space. By breaking through the traditional thinking of watercourse management, this project intends to solve local problems or regional development bottlenecks relating to water by design thinking and design innovation. It also attempts to build a resilient city that co-exists and creates with water, integrating “water and safety”, “water and environment” as well as “water and culture”, and an aesthetic paradigm of surrounding areas of rivers to promote the riverbank stitching development vision of Taiwan.
